Studying abroad is a big investment, so you need to plan ahead. In addition to paying for tuition, you must have funds to cover the full cost of attending a university in the USA. The information on this page will help you better understand these expenses.
Proof of finances
You must receive a Certificate of Eligibility – also known as the “Form I-20” – to apply for your US study visa. To issue your I-20, the University of Tulsa must have proof (usually a bank statement or sponsorship letter) that you have funding available to cover costs for at least 1 year, including tuition, fees and living expenses.
