Funding your graduate education can be expensive. Since U.S. employment opportunities for international students are limited, it is important to consider how you will pay for your education before you arrive in the United States.
Current I-20 Financial Requirements
Mandatory SEVIS Fee – All new F-1 Students using 1-20 must pay a $200 SEVIS Fee prior to applying for a U.S. visa. You may pay this fee with a credit card through an internet connection or by mail in the form of a check or money order to DHS. Third party payment is permitted. To pay the fee on-line, go to www.fmjfee.com. Complete the form supplying the necessary information. Be certain that your name appears exactly as it appears on the I-20 form.
