Cost of Attendance and Financial Requirements

Proof of Financial Support must be given to the OIS before any I-20 or DS-2019 can be processed.

  • F-1 Students are required to show Proof of Financial Support of tuition + fees + books & supplies estimate + local living expenses for one 12-month period.
  • J-1 Students are required to show Proof of Financial Support of tuition + fees + books & supplies estimate + local living expenses for each year of the program.
  • This can be in UM salary, home country government/institutional funding, or personal/family funds.
  • I-20 / DS-2019 Issuance for Dependents: A dependent is defined as a spouse and/or children under the age of 21. The OIS must see an additional $7,200 for a spouse and $6,600 for each child before visa documents will be issued.
  • Home country/institutional funding requires an official letter stating the exact amount of support from the agency or institution providing the funding source.
  • Personal funds require a current, translated bank statement (within the past 6 months).     
    If another person will be providing financial support, i.e. a family member, the OIS will need to see a translated bank statement (within the past 6 months) from that person, along with a letter specifying the amount of support they will provide you during your studies.
