Proof of Financial Resources (for F-1 Visa Only)

The Federal Code of Regulations, CFR 214.2(f), requires that international students provide documentary evidence of financial support in the amount listed on their school's I-20. This estimated cost of attendance amount includes tuition and fees, living expenses, books and health insurance for one academic term (8 weeks). An acceptable form of documentary evidence is an original bank statement or bank letter on bank letterhead signed and stamped by a bank official.  

If you intend to come to the U.S. with your spouse and/or children who will be seeking F-2 visa status, please complete the I-20 Request Form for Dependents (PDF) and submit financial support documents for each accompanying family member. If you have a sponsor, please have the sponsor complete and sign the Affidavit of Financial Support (PDF) and submit the form along with your sponsor's financial documents.
