Required Financial Resource Documents

Students must show proof of financial resources to cover the cost of one academic year in the United States. This includes being able to cover the cost of tuition, living expenses, books, and travel. We must collect evidence of the student’s financial ability before issuing the I-20. We are currently accepting these documents temporarily online with the understanding that the original wet signed documents must be submitted by the beginning of the term.

Evidence of financial ability document requirements:

  • Must be dated within 6 months of the start of the intended term.
  • Must be in USD or show a confirmed conversion to USD by the bank official.
  • Must contain a specific amount of funds available (cannot be estimated figures or general terms such as “more than”, “well above”, or “seven figures”).
  • Must be personal available funds and cannot be company assets, bonds, property, or investments.
  • Bank statements are not accepted unless they contain a bank official's signature/stamp and business card.

You have two options for proving proof of financial resources:

Option 1:

Fill out the second page of the Confirmation of Financial Resources form. Then have your bank official certify that the information is correct and stamp it with the bank seal or official stamp. If the bank account holder is not the student, then you will need to have the account holder sign as the sponsor and fill in the appropriate information.

Option 2:

If your bank wishes to provide a letter rather than filling out the provided form you can follow the bank letter requirements outlined on page 3 of the Confirmation of Financial Resource form. A bank letter that states the account of a person other than the student must be accompanied by a Financial Letter of Support from the sponsor, such as parents or relatives, stating their willingness to cover the educational expenses of the student. Requirements for the Financial Letter of Support are also outlined on page 3 of the form.

*J-2 visa holders may submit the DS-2019 in lieu of the options above.

Athletic Sponsorship

Students who have signed a letter of intent with the Blinn College District Athletic department will receive an email with an adjusted Confirmation of Financial Resource form once the Athletic Department submits the signed letter of intent to the International Student Programs office. Students will be expected to confirm the difference after the athletic sponsorship amount has been applied.

Submitting Financial Documents

The International Office is temporarily accepting financial documents via email due to the global health crisis. Original financial documents will still be required once the student arrives on campus.
