Proof of Funding for International Students
Before visa documents will be issued, international students must show proof of adequate funding for tuition, fees, and living expenses. Additional proof of funding is required if students will be accompanied by a dependent spouse and/or children (for example, F-2 or J-2). Minimum funding requirements for F/J students and their dependents, additional funding considerations, and sample budgets can be found on the MIDP website.
