									                             CONFIDENTIAL FINANCIAL CERTIFICATE FOR 2012-2013
                   For International Graduate Students Requesting A Certificate of Eligibility (I-20/DS-2019)
                                              University of California, Santa Cruz

THE PURPOSE OF THIS FORM

Every applicant eligible for a nonimmigrant student visa (F-1 or J-1) must complete and submit this form before a Certificate of
Eligibility can be prepared by the University of California, Santa Cruz(UCSC). A Certificate of Eligibility is also known as an I-20
(for F-1 students) or DS-2019 (for J-1 students). This is the document you will need to apply for an F-1 or J-1 student visa at a U.S
Consulate or Embassy. For more visa information please visit the International Scholar and Student Services (ISSS) web site at
http://ieo.ucsc.edu/intl-students/new/index.html.

You are required to certify that you will have sufficient funding available for your minimum living and educational expenses at UC
Santa Cruz. If you will bring dependents (spouse/child) on F-2/J-2 visa(s) for the academic year, you must be able to show additional
funds to cover their living expenses as well. Please complete this form and certify that you have adequate funds to meet at least the
minimum amount. PLEASE NOTE THAT AMOUNTS FOR FEES AND LIVING EXPENSES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND
THAT INDIVIDUAL NEEDS MAY VARY FROM THE MINIMUM AMOUNTS STATED.

F-1 or J-1 international students do not qualify for in-state tuition. You must not expect any federal financial aid from the
University unless you are a student with official verification of such an award. Do not plan on employment to meet your financial
needs. The U.S. Consulate/Embassy and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) also require proof of funding before
issuing a visa or admitting you to the U.S.

F-1 Versus J-1

F-1 is the most common status used by international students in the U.S. Most degree-seeking international students at UCSC have the
F-1 status.
J-1 is generally used for students in specific educational exchange programs such as the UC Education Abroad Program, or Fulbright,
however, it may also be used by degree-seeking students. If you believe that you should/must obtain J-1 status, please contact the
International Student Adviser at the International Scholar and Student Services(ISSS) office to discuss your situation:
Fvisa@ucsc.edu.

SEVIS

The Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) is a web-based database developed by the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security to electronically track and monitor the activities of international students and exchange visitors on F, J, and M
visas. Educational institutions that issue visa documents for international students and exchange visitors are required to report
through SEVIS certain personal and enrollment information. Therefore, it is very important that the information that you enter below
is accurate. If there are changes after you submit this form, please inform the ISSS office at Fvisa@ucsc.edu so we can update your
record in a timely manner.


CERTIFICATION BY APPLICANT: This is to certify that all information furnished on this form is true and complete to the
best of my knowledge. I fully understand the minimum amount necessary for my stay in the U.S, and that of my dependents if
applicable. I also understand that university fees are subject to change and that my individual financial needs may vary from the
minimum amount stated on this form.

I agree to inform myself of and obey the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
requirements for international students; to be a full-time student in the educational program and school that the DHS authorizes me to
attend as noted on my Certificate of Eligibility (I-20 Form/DS-2019 Form); to follow the DHS required procedures before
transferring schools or extending my educational program; to obtain the recommendation of the International Student Adviser at the
UCSC International Scholar and Student Services Office and/or U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services authorization before
working in the U.S. I agree to learn the requirements of my international student status and to read my I-20/DS-2019.
