If you are an international student coming to earn your degree on campus, the Office of International Affairs can assist you in your transition to UL Lafayette.
International students who choose to pursue their master’s in computer science on campus can gain real world experience through a Curricular Practical Training internship and/or an Optional Practical Training internship.
Costs & Funding
International students earning their master’s degree online have international fees automatically waived, so you are charged only in-state tuition rates. That’s an enormous savings and makes our online master’s degree in computer science one of the most affordable. If you start your degree online and choose to finish your degree on campus, you would then pay the international tuition and fee rates for the semesters you are on campus.
If you’re coming to campus to earn your degree, consider applying for a graduate assistantship. In exchange for working with a professor in a classroom or a lab, you could qualify for a tuition waiver and earn a living stipend.
Contact the master's in computer science graduate coordinator for more details about all of these funding opportunities.
International Student Admission Requirements
The Graduate School requires that all international applicants provide additional documents and demonstrate English proficiency before you can be admitted and enroll. If you plan to study on campus, you’ll also be required to provide information for issuance of an I-20.
