Qualifying for your I-20
The Certificate of Eligibility is also known as an I-20. It is the document that allows you to get your student visa. Being accepted into an academic or English language program is the first step in the process; finances and intent are the second steps. Being accepted into a program does not guarantee an I-20 or a student visa.
The U.S. government requires that we be absolutely sure, to the best of our ability, that you demonstrate enough financial (cash) support to cover the costs of your program for one academic year (scholarships included) and to provide a plan for how you can afford each following years' costs. Please use this link to download forms to document your finances: Int'l Certification of Finances Information and How do I demonstrate financials for an I-20?
All students getting an F-1 visa must also pay the SEVIS 901 fee. Students must pay this themselves prior to their visa application and interview - for more information click this link. Remember to attach your I-901 receipt to your I-20 before your interview.
If you are transferring from a U.S. college or university, your SEVIS records need to be released to the College before we can create an I-20 from Manhattanville. The Transfer Clearance Form needs to be completed by you the student and then given to the International Student Advisor from your previous school. Make sure you sign the top part before giving it to your International Student Advisor.
