        the total cost of estimated expenses on the International Student Financial Worksheet form must
        be submitted along with the Application for Admission and other documents. An original bank
        statement from each Guarantor must be submitted to verify the amount of support to be
        provided. If the student has dependents that are coming to the United States, please note the
        breakdown on the Financial Statement Form.
        Transcripts of completed schooling, including a copy of your diploma(s).
        Proof of English Proficiency (only 1 of the following is required):
            o An official TOEFL report with a score of 500 or more on the paper/pencil test and 173 or
                 more on the computerized test.
            o A letter of certification from a school verifying your ability to use the English language
                 proficiently.
            o If the above requirements are not met you will be required to attend the Cultural English
                 class in the summer.
        Transfer form is needed if transferring from another school within the U.S. You may obtain this
        form by contacting the International Student Advisor at HSM.

       All documents must be received in the office before an I-20 can be completed.

Upon receipt of all the above documents, prospective fulltime students will be considered for admission
and notified of the decision regarding their acceptance in writing. Admission to HSM is determined by an
objective evaluation of the applicant without regard to race, color, and ethnic origin in accordance with
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

An I-20 form will be sent to accepted students. Please note that if you would like the I-20 to be sent
through Federal Express or DHL, you will be responsible for the payment upon receipt. HSM does not
cover the cost of shipping the package to you.

Depending on where it is shipped to, this could cost approximately $100. The prospective student will
present the I-20 form to the United States Embassy in the country of his/her citizenship to apply for the F-
1 student visa along with their receipt for the SEVIS Fee of $100. (See attached information sheet). A
current student visa is required for all international students to enroll at HSM. Acceptance into HSM does
not guarantee that the Consulate will grant you an F-1 student visa. Those who meet the criteria are
approved by the U.S. Department of Justice, Immigration and Naturalization Service to enroll as
international students.

God bless you. Our prayers are with you that God’s will be done in your life. If you need any help, you
can call Heartland School of Ministry at (214) 687-5531 and ask for the International Student Advisor.
