International Student Funding

Prospective international graduate students are required by U.S. federal law to provide evidence of sufficient financial resources to cover their educational costs in the United States prior to commencing their studies.

If you are accepted into a graduate or professional program, the Graduate School will mail a form titled, "International Graduate Student Notification of Intent" with an official acceptance letter. Please be sure to submit this form and proof of finances directly to the Office of International Students and Scholars (ISS). ISS needs this information to prepare a U.S. immigration document that you will use to apply for a student visa. Instructions for filling out the form and mailing information will accompany the form.
