Financial Requirements

When you request your Form I-20/DS-2019, you must demonstrate that you can meet tuition, fees, and living expenses for the duration of your academic program by completing the Financial Declaration Form, and showing proof of funds to cover estimated costs for at least the first year of your program. You will upload the completed Financial Declaration Form and all funding support documents in your online I-20/DS-2019 request.

Estimated costs for most programs are listed below. If you do not see the estimated cost for your program please contact international@uconn.edu. The estimated costs are not exact; your actual costs may be higher or lower than what is listed. All estimates are based on full course registration during a 9-month academic year, except where noted.

Fees include a $350 visa compliance fee charged each semester to international students on UConn visas to meet costs of providing immigration services and visa sponsorship.

Funding Support Documentation Guidelines

In addition to the Financial Declaration Form, you must submit documentation for all sources of expected funding, which covers at least your first year of estimated expenses. Examples of financial documentation may include bank statements (belonging to you or a supporting sponsor), a scholarship/fellowship letter, or a Graduate Assistantship offer letter.  Your documents must meet the following guidelines:

  • Issued within last three months
  • Issued in English
  • Bank Statements: must identify the bank/institution name, the name of account holder and currency (can be local currency)
  • Personal/Family Funding: must be liquid funds e.g. savings/banking statements or certificates of deposit (no investment fund statements, retirement plans,  salary/income confirmation, property/assets verification, etc.) and your sponsor must complete Part 2: Personal Sponsor Declaration of the Financial Declaration form
  • SACM Scholarship recipients must provide BOTH the Financial Guarantee Award Letter AND a letter confirming your amount of living stipend (either the SACM U.S. Definition of Funding Letter or the letter from your sponsoring University confirming stipend amount)  
  • Students with accompanying family members needing dependent visas (F-2/J-2  families must demonstrate funding for yourself and all accompanying dependents.
  • If you will attend a summer program before starting an academic year program (example, UCAELI summer English study before beginning Master’s degree program in fall) your funding must cover the estimated expenses for the summer program AND the first academic year of your degree program.

Please note that if you have accompanying dependents (spouse & children under the age of 21) your estimated cost of attendance will be higher than the base cost of attendance listed below.
