Lodging: As housing must be secured off-campus by the student, this cost can vary and should be calculated individually by the student based on the actual cost of rent. Housing generally varies between $640 - $1280 per month depending on the type of accommodation and the number of roommates. The housing expense listed above factors in the highest amount of rent per month ($1280), and assumes a shared apartment with 3-4 roommates.
Personal expenses: Include typical personal spending for cultural entertainment and essential daily needs, as well as telecommunications expenses (which will vary by usage and package purchased).
Miscellaneous Fee: One-time fee which covers the SMU IT fees, sports facilities, student card, and mandatory medical and health insurance.
Roundtrip Flight from Gateway City: The flight expense listed above is the estimated cost of a round trip ticket from the gateway city of New York to Singapore. However, you may depart from the city of your choice.
***Students living outside the gateway city may need to arrange for a connecting flight to a gateway city at an additional variable cost, to be calculated individually by the student.
