Financial Requirements FAQ

Once you are admitted, you will need to provide financial information through myIO to be issued an immigration document (I-20/DS-2019).  We will not be able to issue your immigration document until we have this information. The I-20/DS-2019 is necessary for you to receive your student visa to enter the United States. As such, please submit your financial information in a timely manner to account for the time necessary to acquire a visa.

No, International Student & Scholar Services will only accept financial documents that have been submitted through myIO. We cannot accept any documents that are sent by mail, fax or email (any documents sent by mail/fax/email will be destroyed in a secure manner).

You may upload your financial documents multiple times. However, we ask that you try to limit the number of times you submit documents and carefully submit your complete documents in one upload.

Only PDF documents are accepted. Please put all your pages into one PDF document rather than uploading each page individually.

No. In order to issue an I-20 or DS-2019, ISSS must verify that you have liquid funds available for use.
