Sorry to tell you but studying in USA is rather expensive. The cost varies wiith what you study and where you study. The 2-Year Community Colleges are generally much cheaper than a 4-Year university. After completing your 2-Year Associate Degree however. you can easily transfer to the 3rd year at a university.

Nevertheless - you are looking at anywhere between $25,000 to $40,000 per year, including tuition, books, housing & meals.

Studying in Canada is realtively cheaper - perhaps up to 50 per cent cheaper than the U.S,. The New Canadian laws also allow you to work while you study. That is not possible in USA.

Unfortunately getting a scholarship as a foreign student is difficult, unless you are an honors student.

Following is the minimum average cost of studying two year in a Public college in the United States. 

Tuition- 3250 + Accomodation- 8060= 11580

While it's the most popular destination of international student, it's also the most expensive one too.
