Showing proof of financial resources

This information is only for those coming from another country with an F-1 visa.

Students who want to come to the U.S. with an F-1 student visa must have an I-20 form generated by IUPUI. 

To get an I-20, you must show proof of financial resources.  

  • If you have a government scholarship (such as Saudi students sponsored by SACM), attach your scholarship letter.  
  • If you or a family member or a friend will pay for your study, upload two files to your application. 
  1. Individual Sponsor Form (You can download the form here.)
  2. Letter from a bank. Please ASK YOUR BANK for a letter. Please DO NOT SEND a monthly or quarterly statement. The letter must be less than 3 months old and show: 
  • The name and address of the bank 
  • The name of the person who has this account (account holder) 
  • The total amount of money in the account 
  • The kind of money (for example Euros, Saudi riyals, Chinese Yuan) 

Note: The bank letter can be in your language as long as we can find the above information. 

After you submit your application, you will be admitted and your I-20 will be sent to the address you specify. The PIE sends I-20s by FedEx.  

When you receive your I-20, you will register online with SEVIS and schedule a visa interview. The PIE will send instructions on how to do this with your I-20.
