FAQ

  • Visa Process

    1) Will the University provide i-20 or any work offer letter for Visa Processing?

    Yes you will be provided with the i-20 form for those packages which includes Kaplan University courses. If you choose Package E, that does not include the Kaplan University prep program; you have to take your own visa independently.

    2) Can you issue my I-20 prior to submission of financial support proof?

    No. We must receive your bank statement prior to issuing your I-20 immigration document. Please note that the bank statement sent by you will be verified with the bank as you need to show it to the US Embassy or the respective Consultant.

    3) What are the financial resources I must provide for the Visa process?

    U.S. immigration regulations require F-1 and J-1 students to provide their respective educational institutions with the proof of financial resources for at least one year.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: The Visa Officer at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate may require the students to submit the proof of financial support throughout the program.

    4) I don't have enough money in Bank Account, but I have other assets. Will I be accepted for an I-20?

    No. Real estate holdings, insurance policies, personal properties, and stock holdings cannot be used as a replacement for the bank statement to confirm financial support. However, you can use them as supporting documents when you go for the Visa Interview.

    5) Do I have to show my own personal financial resources, or can I show the resources of a relative or other sponsor?

    Your tuition and living expenses can be provided by a family member or a private sponsor. Your sponsor must sign the Affidavit of Support and provide us a notarized copy of the same. Your sponsor also must submit an original bank statement/letter with the specific details as described above.

    6) I don't think I will require so much money for living expenses. Do I still have to show the amount listed?

    7) I will be living with a relative or a host family. Must I provide a bank statement for the full amount of the estimated living expenses?

    No. You do not have to provide a bank statement for the portion of your living expenses that will be provided by your relative or host family. Your relative/host sponsor must be a US citizen, permanent resident, or be otherwise legally authorized to work in the US, and this individual cannot be an international student on an F-1 or J-1 visa.
