The answer to your question may vary depending upon the colleges or universities in the United States to which you are considering applying. If you have a list of colleges or universities in the USA where you would like to apply, you may be better off by contacting an Admissions Counselor at each college or university and asking your questions of each of them.
Most college and university home web pages have links to the Admissions department from that main web page. Most of the Admissions Offices will provide an email contact, so you may send messages with your questions.
I recommend you use the College Search database of the well-respected College Board to find US universities/colleges that fit your needs:
Click on the pink circle to use the step-by-step interactive questionnaire/guide.
I can give you some links to some reliable web sites with information that may help you.
Here is what I have found for you. The links/web pages are listed in no special order. Please connect to them all and read everything completely. Some of the information in the web pages will refer you to other resources -- like talking to someone at a local United States embassy or consulate, for example.
To enter the USA to study, you will need to apply for and obtain a US student visa, which has the requirement of providing proof (documentation) that the student has all the money needed to cover all of his/her living and school expenses while he/she is studying and living in the USA. This is the link to the US Dept. of State information on student visas:
To obtain a US student visa, you will also need to be accepted by a US school, which will need to issue you a US Department of Justice Form I-20, verifying you are accepted as a student at the school. You can read more about the Form I-20 from this US Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement web site:

i admire the belief of economic help, it does not seem acceptable to me to whine a pair of few greater money/kilos a month (which i could use on a latte or something) while they are going into helping human beings in poverty. that being reported your thought is, albeit its originality, no longer a clever one in praxis. the folk from afghanistan does no longer desire to flow domicile, and who can blame them? human beings from much less stepped forward international places who flow to the western international to learn often do no longer return to their domicile international places. unhappy yet authentic. humorous inspite of the undeniable fact that, the united states of a in straight forward terms will pay 0.17% of their GNI on help, mutually as international places interior the ecu pay as much as a million%. the UN objective is 0.7, i don't get why the U. S., which has a best place interior the UN gets away with being so scant.

That is a pretty big order. Why don't you try identifying some US universities where you would like to study. Then contact the admissions office and ask your questions.
