I paid my enrollment deposit; what other documents must I submit?
Western Colorado University and the U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement require that admitted students planning to enter the U.S. on an F-1 visa provide proof of financial support before immigration documents (I-20) can be issued. You must provide evidence of the ability to cover the first year’s educational costs, living expenses, and other miscellaneous expenses must be made available to the University.
Once you receive an admission decision, one of Western’s SEVIS Coordinators will contact you about the required documentation for your visa application process.
Some of the documents required include:
- Completed Affidavit of Support that is provided to you by one of Western’s SEVIS Coordinators;
- A letter of financial support and bank statement showing sufficient funds to cover the first year of study;
- A photocopy of your passport listing official name, birth date, birth place, etc.;
- If residing in the U.S., a photocopy of the visa and I-94 on which you entered the country.
Be advised that original documents, including bank statements, are required once you arrive on Western’s campus; however, for initial certification, copies are acceptable. Certified English translations must accompany all documents in a language other than English.
Please get in touch with any of Western’s SEVIS coordinators for more information about visa requirements:
