Financial Documentation for International Graduate Students

International students who will be sponsored by the University of Oregon in F-1 or J-1 visa status must first obtain a “Certificate of Eligibility" Form I-20 or DS-2019 in order to apply for a visa, or request the transfer of an existing "active" F or J SEVIS record to the UO. 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 or existing "active" F or J SEVIS record can be transferred to the UO. 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 Personal Information & Financial Verification Form (see instructions at the bottom of the page).

Evidence of financial resources is not required if you meet one of the following criteria, but you are still required to submit the "personal information" part of the Personal Information & Financial Verification Form (see instructions at the bottom of the page):

  • In a non-immigrant status other than F-1 or J-1 (i.e. E2, L2, H4, J2, etc.)
  • In asylee or refugee status
  • In undocumented status
  • In US permanent resident status

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 for more info.
