U.S. Federal regulations require that international students show reliable documentation that readily available funds are guaranteed at least for the first year of study and that adequate funding will be available from the same or equally dependable sources for subsequent years. The following documents are required before UNF can issue the Form I-20 needed to obtain the F-1 student visa:
Affidavit of Financial Support and Bank Certification. The Affidavit is a legal document that is signed by the sponsor (the person who will be providing the funds) stating the amount of funds that she/he will provide for the educational expenses of the student applicant and then certified by a bank official that the sponsor does have that amount of funds in his/her account. This form represents an obligation on the part of the sponsor to provide the required amount of funds as indicated on the form. Please review the Estimated Costs of Attendance for International Students to determine the amount of funds needed to be written on the Affidavit.
- Transfer students. F-1 students who are attending another educational institution in the United States are required to notify the international student advisor at their current institution of their intention to transfer and to determine the date when their SEVIS record should be released to UNF. After the release date the student may obtain a new SEVIS I-20 from the International Center at UNF.
F-1 students who are attending a non-SEVIS educational institution in the United States must notify the international student advisor at their current institution of their intention to transfer and to obtain a SEVIS I-20 from UNF.
In order to officially complete the transfer to UNF, it is the responsibility of the international transfer student to notify the International Center within 15 days of enrollment at UNF.
