Cost of Attendance and U.S. Immigration Law 

In order to receive a Form I-20 from Winthrop University, a student must show access to funds that will cover the international student estimated costs for one academic year.  All schools are required by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to make a reasonable estimate of all expenses. This includes tuition, fees, books, supplies, housing and meals, health insurance, and miscellaneous expenditures (clothing, transportation, recreation, etc.).  Winthrop reviews the estimated cost for an international student to attend Winthrop on an annual basis. 

A person may show adequate funding from any dependable source including scholarships, sponsoring agencies, personal funds or funds from the applicant’s family. 

To apply for the Form I-20 all students must complete and submit the Statement of Financial Responsibility and Affidavit of Support.  The student must also submit an original bank statement or bank letter issued no more than six months before your date of admission to the University showing the amount of money guaranteed. 


  • If you receive a scholarship or a graduate assistantship from Winthrop University, the value of the scholarship or graduate assistantship will be deducted from the amount required to be shown by you or your sponsor for the Form I-20.
  • If your family accompanies you while studying in the United States an additional $5,000 per dependent must be indicated on your financial guarantee.

If you have any questions or concerns about the financial documents required for acquiring the Form I-20 please contact The International Center of Winthrop University.
