Financial Information for International Students
Note: The information below is for undergraduate international students.
Before an I-20 form (Certificate of Eligibility) can be
issued for use in obtaining a visa for study in the United States, students must
furnish proof that they have available funds to cover the first year of their
study and available funds for each subsequent year. The following are estimated costs and do not
include travel or automobile expenses. Additional funding will also be necessary for students planning to
enroll in summer courses. Financial
documentation must reflect the following expenses for the current academic year
(nine months) in the financial statement for international students.
The following are tuition and costs for the 2013-2014 academic year:
|Full-time undergraduate tuition and fees (12-18 credit hours)
|Average room and board on campus (includes double room and 15 meals per week; off-campus housing is considerably higher)
|Miscellaneous living expenses (books and personal)
|Total expenses to be reflected in the Financial Statement Form
If you plan to bring dependents to live with you, you must also certify funds of at least $5,000 per year for each dependent.
Please remember that the Financial Statement Form should
reflect the availability of the amount stated above in U.S. dollars and should
be translated into English. Because of
strict immigration limitations on employment, students should not plan on
working as a source of income. Certified
bank statements must accompany your financial forms, as well as letters
outlining financial responsibilities from any sponsor other than parents. A certified copy of the letter of award or
loan approval must accompany any government/corporate scholarship or loan. The
average cost per semester (not including miscellaneous living expenses) is $17,580. Payment must be remitted prior
to each semester. The yearly cost of attendance should never be remitted in one sum.
Contact the Office of Admissions by
phone at (813) 253-6211 or by fax at (813) 258-7398 if you have any questions
concerning the Financial Statement Form. For your convenience these documents are also accepted by fax; however,
you should mail the originals to us. Retain copies of any financial document for use in obtaining your student
visa.Office of Admissions
