Financial Certification - International Master’s Applicants Only

Master's applicants who have accepted an offer of admission must submit documentation proving sufficient funds are available to support their studies and living expenses. The minimum amount to be certified for the academic year is noted in the admission offer letters. The amount is based on the annual tuition charges plus an estimated cost-of-living figure, as well as an allocation for health insurance and student fees. Master's applicants should be prepared to submit their financial documentation as soon as they accept their offer of admission; it should not be submitted earlier than that time.

PhD applicants will work with the Graduate School to secure an I-20. You may contact the Graduate School at
