Financial Certification

Submit a Declaration of Finances and Supporting Documents

In order to study in the United States  as an international student, you must document that you have sufficient financial resources. You must prove that you have enough funds to cover all the costs associated with your first year of study. This budget includes tuition fees, housing, books, and other living and miscellaneous costs.

As an international student you will need to have your financial institution provide a certification that you have the amount required available and from a reliable source. International students should not expect to work to cover the costs of their education in the United States.

After You Receive Your I-20

If Fox Valley Technical College accepts you and you provide the required financial certification documents you will be sent an I-20 form. The I-20 verifies your eligibility to apply for an F-1 student visa. All embassies and consulates require interview appointments to issue a student visa. Interviews for a visa may take a long time to schedule. PLAN AHEAD. Bring all important documents with you to the interview.
