With over 3,500 undergraduates and more than 95 areas of study, we're big enough to offer you a first-class academic experience, yet small enough to make you feel at home.

Proof of Financial Support

Though proof of financial support is not required at the application stage, it is required before the I-20 document may be issued for the F-1 student visa appointment. Therefore, to expedite the process, prospective students are encouraged to submit proof of financial support with other application materials.
