Every international student seeking an international student visa from the U.S. government must provide evidence of financial support by submitting a bank statement that is no more than six months old at the time you would begin attending ACU. Your bank statement must show sufficient funds to cover the estimated cost of living and studying at ACU for one academic year (nine months) minus any scholarships or graduate assistantships awarded by ACU.
The current cost of attending ACU for one academic year is $32,138. For a detailed estimate of expenses, please visit our expenses page.
Additionally, if you are submitting a bank statement that belongs to someone other than yourself, a letter from the owner of the bank account stating that the funds will be used to support the applicant is also required. If you prefer, you may use our Affidavit of Support form in place of a letter.
