Financial Guarantee

United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (CIS) regulations require documentation that sufficient financial resources are available to meet a student’s prospective educational and living expenses while in the U.S. Therefore, Oklahoma State University requires a guarantee of financial resources from each applicant who expects to obtain or maintain Student (F-1) or Exchange Visitor (J-1) status.

Applicants are required to submit financial documentation that equals or exceeds one full academic year of expenses, for the program of study they are interested in pursuing. Adjustments in the financial certification cannot be made based on a student’s individual circumstances. This estimate is based upon 15 semester hours each semester for undergraduate studies and 9 semester hours each semester for graduate.
