Undergraduate International Admission

Undergraduate Visa and Financial Documentation

The University of Dayton and the United States Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement require that students who plan to enter the U.S. meet certain requirements. A student must be admitted and provide proof of the ability to cover educational costs, living and other miscellaneous expenses for the first year. UD requires you to submit financial documents to our office to verify this financial capability prior to admission to the University. Once we have received these documents, We will review your application for admission.

Once admitted to the University of Dayton, we will prepare an immigration document (I-20). You will then use this document to obtain a student (F-1) visa from your consulate.
