Applicants must be financially self-sufficient and able to provide proof of at least $27,019. To receive an I-20 and F-1 Visa, you must show that you have adequate funding to meet all the expenses that will be incurred in your proposed program of study. You must submit a current (not over 90 days) and certified copy of your financial statement from a registered bank or savings institution in U.S. dollars showing adequate financial resources for the period of intended enrollment. The I-20 will not be processed until we have received this information. This document must be included with your admissions application.
Do not send this information to any other office except the Admissions Office. For questions concerning the I-20 or your financial documents, contact the International Admissions Office at 651-793-1219. If support is coming from outside of the U.S., then submit a certified letter from the sponsor indicating that they will be responsible for all educational expenses and a bank statement showing availability of U.S. $27,019 plus the additional amount required for each dependent. For more information, see the International Student Admissions Application. Copies will not be accepted.
Minnesota Law (M.S. 135A, 14) requires all students born after 1956 be immunized against diphtheria, tetanus (every 10 years), mumps and rubella. Minnesota high school students who graduated in 1997 or later are exempt from the immunization requirements. In addition, a student may be exempted for medical or conscientious reasons. Unless exempt, a student must provide immunization data at initial registration. For more information and to obtain an Immunization Form, contact the Admissions Office, visit the Immunization Requirements section or download the student immunization record form.
