Demonstrating Financial Resources
Immigration laws require international students who wish to study in the U.S. on an F-1 visa to show proof of finances for one year.
The University of Washington does not offer financial assistance or scholarships. To complete the application for admission, students who will require an I-20/F-1 visa to study at the Seattle campus of the University of Washington must verify sufficient funds for one year of study.
Students must verify a minimum of:
- $43,049 For those beginning studies autumn quarter 2013
- $57,395 For those beginning studies summer quarter 2013
Please do not submit bank documents or financial information with your application. If you are offered admission and you decide to enroll at the UW, you will be required to submit a bank statement or letter showing proof of finances. Detailed instructions will be sent with the offer of admission.
