  1. $50 application fee (non-refundable) payable by check or money order.
  2. 18 hours of class is the minimum number of hours that an F-1 student is required to register for to maintain legal status.
  3.  These costs include food, room and other expenses. These are estimates based on residency on campus. Additional payment will be required if the student wishes to remain in college housing during vacation periods.
  4. All students must present proof of comprehensive health insurance valid in the U.S. Students without coverage must enroll in the Salem State University health insurance plan ($1,854 for one-year coverage, which runs from August 1 to July 31) or a comparable plan.

Salem State University now offers a payment plan to break education costs into monthly payments rather paying in one large sum.
