Johnson State College is required to obtain verification of its international students’ financial resources. All international students must demonstrate that funds exist at least for the student’s first year of study and, barring unforeseen circumstances, that adequate funding will be available from the same or equally dependable sources for subsequent years.
International applicants must complete the financial documentation form included in the International Application for Admission, and supply official financial documents, on official letterhead or with an official seal, in support of the form.
Demonstrating Financial Support
Students may demonstrate financial support the following ways:
If you will be supported by your government or sponsoring agency, submit an official copy of your sponsorship award letter;
If you will be supported by private funds*, the sponsor** must complete the Foreign Student Certification of Finances, and submit supporting documents demonstrating that sufficient funds are available to cover expenses of the student studying in the U.S.A.
• Appropriate documents for financial verification include:
° Official proof of personal or family savings
° Bank-issued certified letters stating available funds
° Official bank statements
° Bank books
° Official tax documents
- *If support is to come from a sponsor within the United States, the sponsor should complete INS form I-134 (Affidavit of Support). You can find this form by going to www.uscis.gov/i-134.
** Students may be supported by parents, relatives, business persons or other benefactors.
