Before beginning their studies in the U.S., international
students must present documentation confirming they will
be financially secure while pursuing their education.
A Form I-20
Certificate of Eligibility for F-1 Student Status is needed to
obtain an F-1 Student visa or status – or to keep lawful F-1 status
– when transferring to or changing schools within the U.S.
To receive your Form I-20, you must be accepted for
full-time study at St. John's University; you also
must prove you can meet the costs of living and studying in
the U.S. Complete information about U.S. government requirements
for proving financial capability for your Form I-20 is available in
our packet, "How to Get Your Form I-20." You will receive this
packet with your application for admission to the University.
