letter of support with an official bank statement. Permanent Residents do not need to complete this form, but must provide proof

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.
