As required by INS (Immigration and Naturalization Services) regulations, international students must demonstrate that they have access to adequate money to pay for their educational expenses. A tuition deposit is required before the issuance of the I-20 form, which is required to secure a visa to enter the United States. The deposit amount varies and therefore the student will need to work closely with the Office of International Admissions to ensure that all requirements are met.
