INTERNATIONAL STUDENT'S REQUIRED FINANCIAL DOCUMENTATION
Below you will find information for International Students. You may also visit the International Student & Scholar Services page HERE.
At Regis University, international student applicants on F-1 and/or J-1 visas are required to show that they have sufficient funding available to pay tuition and living expenses for one full academic year. Official bank statements are the easiest way for applicants to showcase this financial data. The statement must show the name of the account holder and the length of time the account has been active. International bank statements should be no older than three months, while U.S. bank statements should be no older than one month.
For more information on the U.S. dollar amount required to attend Regis University and cover your cost of living, please contact a Regis Enrollment Counselor. Additionally, please consult your enrollment counselor regarding questions about any additional sources of financial documentation that are accepted by the university.
AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT
Many international students receive assistance with their educational funding through a sponsor, whether it be a family member who is contributing toward the cost of their education, an employer, a contact in the United States or any other contributor. The student must have each sponsor complete an affidavit of support on behalf of the student. The affidavit of support indicates the dollar amount promised to the student by the sponsor and the document must be notarized before being submitted to Regis University. The sponsor will also be required to submit an official bank statement showing their ability to fund the student’s education in the amount promised. To obtain the affidavit of support form, please contact a Regis admissions counselor.

Since international students are required to show proof of adequate financial standing in order to attend Regis University, employment opportunities are available to international students only as a way to provide additional income, not as a way to offset educational costs. Regis University does offer non-federally funded Work-Study as well as Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT), which must be an integral piece of a student’s curriculum. All of these employment opportunities are highly competitive and strongly regulated. For more information, please contact Cathy Gorrell, director of registration.
