In the USA, tuition fee largely depends on whether you plan to study at a Public or Private Institution (refer to the difference between public and private Institutions here).
Estimated tuition fee (per year):
Private Institution: $15000 to $30000 per year. At some Universities, it could go beyond $ 40000 per year
Public Institution: $10000 to $20000 per year
Community College: $10000 to $15000 per year
Note: The tuition fee is different for different universities and varies widely with courses and popularity of the Institution. It can vary from as low as $ 5000 per year to as much as $ 50000 per annum for some private universities
Estimated Living Cost: $10000 to $12000 (per year). An average of $700 to $1000 per month should be considered as safe
This includes your accommodation (room and board), travel, food, some books, some clothing and may be some entertainment expense too.
Please find below a range of costs that have been considered while estimating the above listed living :
Books and study materials will cost $500 to $1000 approximately per academic year
Travel costs within the US will be between $300 and $700 approximately
Room and Board will cost between $3000 and $7500 approximately per year. Allow an additional $1000 to $2000 for vacation periods when the dormitory might be closed
If you will be living off campus, the cost of renting an apartment will be between $300 and $600 a month, but could be much higher contingent on the location of the school.
Meals should cost about $2500 a year, assuming that you do not fancy too many outings
