*All graduate students are required to have health insurance. International students are required to use the Duke student health insurance and will be enrolled automatically during the fall semester. Coverage is provided for the entire academic year. For the 2016-17 academic year, to add a spouse, the annual charge is $4,625. To add a child, the annual charge is $2,625. To add a family (spouse and children), the annual charge is $7,250.

**The transcript fee is a one-time fee and is charged during the first semester of the program.

***Students enrolled in the one-year degree program are required to attend a summer session and will incur these additional tuition and university fees. Additional living expenses will also be incurred.

****The MIDP Program has a flat tuition rate regardless of the number of credits taken in a semester.

 

Proof of Funding for Living Expenses

 

Before visa documents will be issued, international students must show proof of adequate funding for living expenses that will be incurred during the first year of study. Estimated living expenses for 2016-2017 are US $1,600/month for a single person. International students entering the program must prove possession of the first twelve months of living expenses ($1,600/month x 12 months), for a total of $19,200. Additional proof of funding is required if students will be accompanied by a spouse and/or children. The amount of funding that must be demonstrated for a spouse is $750/month and the amount for each child is $350/month. So as an example, if an international student wishes to bring a spouse and two children with them, they would need to prove an additional $17,400 of funding ($750/month x 12 months + $700/month x 12 months).
