International: Cost of Attendance

Office of Global Engagement

In order to create and generate an official Form I-20, we must include the cost of tuition, books and materials, along with estimated living and personal expenses, as required by the United States Government. Applicants will be required to provide proof of their ability to pay these amounts through official bank and financial statements. These documents will be checked by the Embassy when the interview for the F1 visa is conducted, so it is important to be very precise. Form I-20 will NOT be issued without proof of the ability to pay the below stated Tuition and Fees amounts in full. Your Bank Statement should indicate access to the FULL AMOUNT of total Cost of Attendance listed below.
