If you have not already done so, you will need to submit sufficient financial statement of support and a copy of your passport. Your financial statement of support must have a date of January 1, 2021 or after. We recommend that you submit these documents as soon as possible to be processed into your file.
All financial documents for the Spring 2022 term must be submitted no later than October 22nd, 2021. Students submitting documents after October 22nd may experience delays receiving their statement of intent, I-20, and/or visa due to high processing volume at that time.
Your financial statement of support must be dated after January 1, 2021. If you submitted bank documents dated December 31, 2021 or before, you must submit new documents. Please submit scanned copies of the first two pages of your passport. Submit financial documents and copies of your passport to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Spring 2022 Offer Financial Documents” and make sure to include your 10-digit USCID number. Guidelines for acceptable financial documents can be found here.
