Cost of Attending

professor teaching

In order to receive an I-20 from SAU, an international applicant must show proof of funds that exceed the cost of attending the university for an academic year.

Please send copies of bank or financial statements showing a total liquid balance that exceeds the yearly cost of your academic program to international@sau.edu. Use the Declaration of Finance Form (pdf) to help you with this process. Select your program from the dropdown menu, and you will see the total cost for one year of studies. Admitted undergraduate students may include their SAU scholarship in calculating the total proof of funding needed.

Students financially sponsored by a government scholarship program (e.g. SACM) or other agency (e.g. Fulbright) need to submit a financial guarantee in order to receive their I-20. The financial guarantee must state that the provided funding has been approved specifically for the student's enrollment at SAU. Initial scholarship or award letters with no mention of SAU are not sufficient. We will issue acceptance to qualified students who have completed all academic requirements so that they may acquire the guarantee.
