Declaration of Support & Financial Guarantee Documentation

To study in the United States, you need a Form I-20, or “Certificate of Eligibility for Non-immigrant Student Status.”

After you have been re-admitted to the University you will receive instructions on how to submit your Declaration of Support, Bank Statement, and copy of your Passport to UA International using your institutional username and password, known as a NetID.

We recommend you upload your documents to UA International within 2 weeks of receiving your admissions award as it takes time to generate the I-20.

Declaration of Support

If you have questions regarding your I-20 documents, please email


You will need to apply for a nonimmigrant student visa to come to the United States for your education. Make sure the type of visa you receive matches the I-20 type you have for attending an academic school (F or J).

Submitting a visa application early is important, as visa appointment and processing wait times vary. The US Department of State provides an online tool to help you estimate your processing wait time, depending on the city your embassy/consulate is in.
