Before traveling to the U.S., a citizen of a foreign country must generally obtain a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. The type of visa you will need is based on the purpose of your travel. For more information visit the U.S. Department of State Web site at: http://travel.state.gov/visa/visa_1750.html

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security requires both undergraduate and graduate students to certify financial resources for living expenses for the full twelve months of each calendar year that a student will be attending his/her program at our institution. The living expense amounts stated above are for these full twelve months. If an undergraduate or graduate student plans to enroll in courses for the summer session, he/she is required to certify financial resources for the additional summer tuition amount. These additional summer tuition amounts (for both undergraduate and graduate) do not include any funds for travel and students should check with the Office of Admissions and Records (OAR) or the Graduate College for the current tuition amounts.
Married students who will be accompanied by spouses (and/or children), must certify additional financial resources to both the institution and to the U.S. embassy or consular office in order for dependent visas to be issued. The estimated cost for accompanying dependents can be obtained by contacting OAR, The Graduate College or ISSS.
Purchase of the University Insurance Plan, which provides worldwide medical insurance coverage, is mandatory unless proof of equivalent coverage is provided. Health insurance is also available to students' dependents for an additional fee.
