International students who will be sponsored by the University of Oregon on an F-1 visa or J-1 visa must first obtain a “Certificate of Eligibility” Form I-20 or DS-2019 in order to schedule a visa appointment. Verification of a student's financial capability to pay tuition, fees and living expenses for at least the first year of study is required before Form I-20 or DS-2019 can be issued. The total estimated cost of attendance at the UO for the first year can be found below. You must provide your source(s) of funding and financial documentation to verify you have the capability to pay for your first year of study at the UO by completing the Financial Certification & Immigration Information Form (see link below).
If you are in the U.S. in a non-immigrant status other than F-1 or J-1 (i.e. E2, L2, H4, J2, etc.), you do not have to submit evidence of financial resources, but you are still required to submit the immigration information on the Financial Certification & Immigration Information Form (see link below).
Note: If you have full funding from the UO or your home government, and plan to bring a spouse, you may prefer to apply for a J-1 visa. A spouse of a J-1 student can apply for work authorization in the U.S. and study part-time. Please email email@example.com for more info.
