Modest annual increases can be expected. Students should also allow for travel expenses and health insurance. Participation in the Vanderbilt-sponsored health insurance plan is mandatory unless the online insurance waiver is submitted by August 1. International students may not waive with alternative coverage. The 2020-2021 health insurance cost for domestic students is $2,355 and for international students is $3,655. More information about the health insurance can be found at vu.edu/student-health-insurance.
Students who are living off-campus will need to complete a form attesting that you are not living with parent(s). Falsifying the form will be considered a student conduct issue that could lead to suspension or expulsion.
*For Opportunity Vanderbilt recipients, we will provide $310 for food and housing costs for the last 2 weeks of remote instruction for the fall semester. These funds will disburse to your student account on November 9.
