Financial Statement for Degree-Seeking International Students
(F-1 and J-1 Visa Holders)
All degree-seeking students, who need a Form I-20 (for F-1) or DS-2019 (for J-1), must provide ﬁnancial documentation to prove that
they have sufﬁcient funding to cover their expenses for the ﬁrst academic year. The amount of funding (in U.S. dollars) must include
tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, medical insurance, and other expenses. For current tuition, fees, and estimat-
ed costs of living, please go to our web page: www.roosevelt.edu/international/tuition.
Statement of Cost:
Students and their sponsors should expect a 5 to 10 percent increase in both tuition and cost of living for each year in
attendance. Degree-seeking international students must secure reliable and full funding for the duration of their studies.
Additional Financial Support for Accompanying Dependents:
Please add $6,000 for a spouse and $4,000 for each child to the minimum expenses per year. On a separate sheet of paper, list the
names of your dependent(s), with family name in capital letters, date of birth, country of birth, country of citizenship, country of
residency and relationship to the student.
Full payment of tuition and fees is due in the beginning of each term. Be sure to know your government’s regulations regarding
foreign exchange and transfer of funds to the United States. Make arrangements before leaving your country to ensure complete
funding for the beginning of each term and at regular intervals throughout the year. Detailed information about payments may be
found on our home page.
As an international student applicant, you can have more than one ﬁnancial sponsor. You can be your own sponsor as well. However,
your sponsor cannot be someone who is holding an F-1 or J-1 non-immigrant student status in the United States. Each of your spon-
sors must complete and sign the Afﬁdavit of Support. If you will be your own sponsor, you must complete the Afﬁdavit of Support
Afﬁdavit of Support:
On the reverse side of this statement is the Afﬁdavit of Support. If you have more than one sponsor, please make a copy for each
one of them. The Afﬁdavit of Support must be accompanied by original bank letter(s) or account statement(s) issued by your bank
or your sponsor(s)’ bank, showing that sufﬁcient funds are available to support your study and living expenses for at least the ﬁrst
academic year. Keep copies of all ﬁnancial documentation for your visa application.
