Step 1: Prepare Financial Documents

All F-1/J-1 students must demonstrate they can fund their tuition, fees, and living expenses for the duration of their academic program. Students must show that funding is available to cover the estimated costs for at least the first year of the program. Please see the estimated cost of attendance for your program below and submit proof of this amount with your I-20/DS-2019 request. Please note that these estimated costs will be revised every year, or as needed. I-20/DS-2019 requests and funding support documents must reflect the current estimated cost for your program at the time of submission.

All figures based on full course registration & 9-month academic year calendar, except where noted.
*Tuition Waived for students with Graduate Assistantship (GA)
**Estimate based on 18 credit course load for MS BAPM
***Estimate based on 9 credit course load for LLM program

Funding Support Documentation Guidelines

Students must submit both the Financial Declaration Form and submit documentation for ALL sources of expected funding. This may include bank statements, scholarship/fellowship letter, Graduate Assistantship letter.  Documentation must meet the following guidelines:

  • Issued within past 3 months
