Documents for I-20

All international students who will attend USU Eastern will need a Form I-20 “Certificate of Eligibility for Non-immigrant Student Status.” The Form I-20 is used to apply for a visa to enter the United States.

Immigration laws require international students who wish to study in the U.S. on an F-1 visa show proof of finances for one year. Information on providing the required documents will be provided to students after admission.

Admitted students must provide the following so that the I-20 (the document needed to apply for a U.S. visa):

  • Copy of valid passport

  • Current bank statement in English or certified English translation from the student's sponsor (for example a family member) or, if sponsored by a government agency, a letter of support on agency letterhead.

    The bank statement or letter must:
    • Be prepared on bank letterhead.
    • Be in English.
    • Be liquid assets (such as checking or savings).
    • Include the date of the letter or statement was prepared.

Transfer Credit

If a student has attended a college or university in the U.S., the USU Records Office will check the courses for USU equivalency courses and apply the courses to the student’s Utah State University transcript.

If a student has attended a college or university outside the U.S., a transfer credit review must be requested. Instructions can be found at International Credit Transfer.  If you have questions about this process, please email intlcredittrans@usu.edu.
