Tuition and Fees

The tuition for visiting scholars is $1,200 per semester, with no fee for the summer semester. Visiting scholars also pay a $400 fee to process their visa application. Tuition can be waived for visiting scholars from our partner universities. If you are from a partner university, please contact the Assistant Dean for a fee waiver at

Please note that we have a limited number of visiting scholars positions and we encourage early applications; preferably apply a year before you plan to arrive to OSU.
