Declaration of Finances for International Undergraduate Students

Before we can issue you the Certificate of Eligibility for F-1 Student Visa (I-20) or J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa (DS-2019), we need complete and verifiable documentation that you have the financial resources to meet your educational and living expenses for the entire period of proposed undergraduate study. You must include the sources of support for all years of undergraduate study. We will begin mailing Certificate of Eligibility forms (I-20/DS-2019) in May, after you have committed to attend Stanford.

Type of visa you currently hold

If you hold a visa type other than F-1/J-1, do you intend to change your visa status to F-1 /J-1 to attend Stanford?

If you are changing visa status, how do you plan to change?


Stanford is required to verify that you have sufficient financial resources to support yourself at Stanford before we can issue the Certificate of Eligibility for F-1 Student Visa (I-20) or J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa (DS-2019). This proof may be:

Bank statements, with the amount listed in U.S. dollars

Letters of support (required for support by companies, governments or other institutions)

Letters from your parents and banks confirming the understanding of the responsibility for 4 years of funding at Stanford and that the funding is available

If documentation is not in English, an official translation MUST be provided. Any funds listed in foreign currency MUST show the equivalent amount in U.S. dollars.

If you are receiving financial aid from Stanford, please be aware that Stanford cannot assume responsibility for international economic factors such as currency fluctuations in determining financial aid, nor can we adjust your financial aid award to accommodate foregone resources such as lost support from friends or relatives or declined government or corporate grants.

If you have not been awarded financial aid from Stanford, we ask that you give serious thought to the financial resources that will be necessary to cover your educational expenses, as you will not be eligible for financial aid from Stanford at any time during your undergraduate career.


Expenses are likely to increase each year. Please plan accordingly. These estimates do not include expenses for international travel or travel within the United States, as those amounts can vary considerably.
