What do international students normally pay for insurance?

I am getting car insurance for the first time in the US. My friend who is American says she pays $100 a month. Can I expect to pay the same? What's the average cost of car insurance for international students?

“As an international student, the average cost of car insurance is $2,360 for a six-month policy or $393 per month. This is dependent on your age, your past driving record (if any), and whether you’re able to obtain a driver’s license from a U.S. state.
However, this rate is purely an average and may not reflect every car insurance company. To determine how much you may pay for car insurance, search car insurance quotes online. Here, you can see how much a rate will cost with a carrier based on your unique factors and the coverage you require.”
