official proof of their ability to finance their studies and living expenses while in the United States. The letter of financial support must be
completed in full by all non-immigration applicants. The I-20 will not be sent to any student unless the University has received this
letter of support with an official bank statement. Permanent Residents do not need to complete this form, but must provide proof
of their Immigration status. Indicate the family (last) name in CAPS as it appears on the passport. Attach a copy of the letter of
acceptance, if issued and a copy of your passport.

                                                       VERIFICATION OF FUNDS
In calculating your expenses, you should keep in mind that Immigration regulations do not allow F-1 student visa holders to work
(with the exception of students taking the Work Study Experience Major. However earnings from this program cannot be considered
here). Therefore, you must prove means of support that you currently have and should not anticipate employment/internship as a
means of support while in the USA. Financial documents must be current and reflect resources within six months of the date of I-20
issuance. You must enclose a bank statement verifying amount of funds on bank letterhead stationery, signed by a bank official. Source
and amount of financial support must be in US dollars. Sponsors must complete the Affidavit of Support section on this form.
