Before an I-20 can be authorized by Belhaven University you must submit proof of financial support. The Affidavit of Support form (I-134) can be obtained from U.S. embassies and consulates. You will be required to have original financial support documents to show the U.S. Consular official when obtaining your visa.

Financial Support for International Students

A notarized bank letter or notarized Affidavit of Support form from your sponsor must be attached to your statement of Financial Support. The bank letter must be submitted in English with the current exchange rate signed by a bank official verifying that your sponsor has adequate funds to support your studies.

In the case of scholarships from a private source, please submit an original statement from the sponsoring agency reflecting the amount awarded per year and the period of time for the scholarship. It will be necessary that the scholarship be valid for Belhaven University.

After all admission credentials have been received and evaluated and all financial information has been provided and you are accepted to the College, we will forward an I-20. This document must be taken along with proof of financial support to the U. S. Embassy in your country to secure a visa to attend Belhaven University.
