You do not have to pre-pay for your room and food costs. Those costs are part of your overall program cost that is paid for primarily by your bank loan that begins after you have started making an income in your paid internship.
You are responsible for paying for your own travel costs and visa costs.
Finding a sponsor is your own responsibility. You can ask friends and family for assistance. If you know someone who is a U.S. permanent resident or citizen who would be eligible and willing to co-sign a loan from a U.S. bank, you might qualify for an Alternative Loan.

6. Graduate Record Exam (GRE)
Although not required for most countries, we strongly encourage you to take the GRE general test. A high GRE score may decrease the initial amount international students are asked to pay upon enrollment. Also, taking the GRE increases the likelihood of internationals obtaining a student visa for our program.
GRE is required from all applicants from India and Iran unless you have 2 years or more of paid professional programming work experience, and your GPA is above 3.0 (B average).
