These costs for full-time students taking 12-16 credit hours per semester comprise the direct annual costs of attending Bradley University. Some courses may require additional fees. Indirect costs, such as books, transportation and personal supplies, vary from student to student, but average $3,000.

In addition, International Students are required to have mandatory health insurance through a US-based carrier. We recommend purchasing a policy before departing to the US. For students who are not covered by a medical plan, the University provides information on Health Insurance through Gallagher Koster.   Information on specifics can be found at www.gallagherkoster.com/Bradley .
