International Financial Statement Instructions

Download Financial Statement Form

The I-20 Certificate of Eligibility (required to obtain a student visa) cannot be issued without proof of sufficient financial resources and sponsorship verification statements. The following instructions will assist you in preparation of the financial statement:

Section 1: Student's Statement of Financial Responsibilities

The applicant must read and complete Section 1 and sign it. If self-sponsored, the applicant should write "self" as the name of the sponsor and sign and date Section 2.  A self-sponsored student must provide evidence of financial resources to cover expenses for the full length of the program.

Section 2: Sponsor's Statement of Financial Responsibilities

The sponsor must sign and date Section 2. If the student is sponsored by an agency or government, such sponsorship must be verified by an attached official statement. The original document must be on file at TCU.  Note: If a student has more than one sponsor, the student and each sponsor must complete a separate form and indicate the amount of support in Section 2. Copies of this form can be made for additional sponsors.   Each sponsor must present evidence of funding in the form of bank statements and letters confirming his/her employment.

Section 3: Financial Verification from Bank or Other Financial Institution

This section must include supporting documents that show evidence of the funds and evidence of sufficient salary in the form of bank statements and letter from the employer in the company's letterhead.  Currency amounts must be specific and converted to their equivalency in U.S. dollars. Ambiguous amounts stating only "low or high number of figures", or self-assessing financial documents, will not be accepted.

Note: All forms and evidence must be originals and submitted with a translation in English.
