In addition to the application requirements listed under the Application Instructions page, please read below for further information and requirements for international students:
Evidence of Financial Support
For purposes of obtaining a visa, the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service requires that all international students submit evidence of independent financial support in the form of a signed statement from a bank or scholarship source.
Upon admission, you will be required to provide evidence of independent financial support in the form of a statement from a bank or scholarship source. The appropriate form and instructions will be sent to you at the time you are admitted to the University. This communication will come from the Office of International Education.
Please note that all documents showing evidence of financial support should go directly to the Office of International Education, not the Graduate College.
Documents not issued in English must be accompanied by a notarized English translation.
