Tuition Payments for International Students

International students are required by law to financially support all expenses associated with studying in the United States. 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.

International Student FAQs

International students are allowed to register for courses but must pay for them by the tuition due date. If tuition is not paid by the due date, international students are automatically dropped from their courses. Email reminders about the tuition due date are sent to international students as a courtesy.

For students enrolled in accelerated terms (5 weeks or 8 weeks), tuition is due for the course(s) on the first day of the term for the registered course(s).

For students enrolled in a traditional, semester-based term, tuition is due August 1 for the fall term and January 1 for the spring term.
