1. A bank balance statement (either issued in the foreign country or in the United States).
2. An affidavit of support signed by the applicant’s financial supporter with proof of financial ability.
3. A letter of support signed by the applicant’s family member, which indicates that the supporter will be responsible for all financial obligations. while the applicant stays in the United States, with proof of financial ability.
The proof of financial responsibility shows the ability to meet the tuition, fees and living expenses. A Bank Verification Statement with a minimum of $17,000 USD must be provided; students accompanied by their family members must provide an additional $4,800 USD for each family member. The financial sponsor(s) must provide the necessary funding required for each family member, and any additional documents showing relationship to the student.
Since individual backgrounds vary greatly, applicants are assessed on a case-by-case basis. The Admissions Counselor meets with each applicant to determine whether the applicant possesses the necessary motivation and ability to benefit from the proposed program of study and to verify that all admissions requirements have been met.
Any foreign document containing a language other than English must be submitted with a full English translation certifying that the translation is complete and accurate, and that the translator is competent to translate.
Due to our modest size and based on the fact that our international students represent a very wide range of countries, we do not have an onsite or contracted interpreter/translator to assist with the enrollment process for international students. However, our admissions staff are bilingual in English and Korean, and we are fully able to assist our students from Korea. For students from all other countries, we advise students to come with a friend, family member, or other acquaintance who is fluent in English and is able to provide interpretation during the admission consultation and enrollment process.
