Applying for a Student Visa
If accepted to American University, students will need immigration documents to present at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate for the application for an F-1 or J-1 student visa. Study on an F-1 student visa requires an I-20 form, which is issued by AU. Study on a J-1 student visa requires a DS-2019 form, which is issued by the student's financial sponsor. If the sponsor does not issue the DS-2019, AU will issue it.
All students must be able to demonstrate financial ability to pay for at least one year of academic and living expenses before being issued an I-20 or DS-2019.
Transfer In Form: If you are currently studying in the United States on an F or J visa and decide to attend AU, you will be required to submit the "Immigration and Transfer-In Form" before your AU I-20 or DS-2019 can be issued.
* Please visit ISSS for the AU Cost Guide, sample bank letters, the AU CFIS form, and the Immigration and Transfer-In form.
All financial documents must be dated within the past three months to be considered valid.
