To receive an I-20, you must have proof of holding $4,200.00 USD in a bank for estimated educational and living expenses in the U.S. For each additional family member you should have an additional $2,000.00 USD in the bank.

Submit an original bank statement showing a minimum of $4,200. Bank letters should be written on official bank letterhead, in English (or have a certified translation attached), stamped and signed by a bank official. The letter should state name of the account holder, the date the account was opened, the currency type, and specifically state the amount that is currently in the account. If the funding is not coming from your account, submit an original bank statement from your sponsor.
IMPORTANT! Obtain two original bank statement letters. Send one original letter to the IEP. The other original letter is given to the U.S. embassy or consulate when you apply for a visa. Please send an official bank statement showing a minimum of $4,200 in order to show your eligibility for the I-20. An official bank statement letter is required before an I-20 can be created for you.
