International Students

Welcome to the United States and to Stetson University!

Please complete the international student application checklist through the Office of Admission, as well as the International Student Certification of Finances.

International students will only receive an I-20 for their F-1 student visa application after completing the Certification of Finances and the accompanying proof of funding shows that they are able to pay the full-time cost of attendance for one school year (including housing and meals). This includes any scholarships received from Stetson University or other sources.
