International Student Finances
The university strictly conforms to U.S. immigration laws concerning international students. Upon acceptance, you must provide certified evidence that you have adequate funds to meet all your expenses during the first year of college. In addition, U.S. Immigration requires this information to be on your I-20 form (the form we send you to give to the U.S. Consulate in your country to secure a student visa). It is important for you to know that tuition and fees must be paid prior to the beginning of each semester. Also, even though you are only required to show proof of financial support for the first year, you are expected to have planned funding for the duration of your course of study.
