International Student Supplement
Please note the following details when completing the International Student Supplement of the online application.
The cost of tuition is the same for both international and domestic students. For visa purposes, international candidates must be prepared to pay the total cost of attending Stern, including tuition, fees and living expenses. This total estimated cost for 2012-13 is $90,000 USD (including living expenses) for the first year. Certification of this ability to fund your first year of study must be provided in the International Student Supplement.
The International Student Supplement must be completed in full by all non-U.S. citizens, including non-resident aliens (those holding F, J or trainee visas) and foreign government officials. U.S. Permanent Residents are not required to complete the International Student Supplement. The International Student Supplement is divided into three sections:
- Visa status: If you are currently in the United States, list the type of visa you hold and the name of your sponsor here.
- Funding: You must complete this section. To obtain a student visa, you must demonstrate the ability to pay for your entire first year of study in the U.S. You also will be required to indicate the source(s) of funding for your second year. The funding section of the International Student Supplement helps you start preparing for the visa application process by encouraging you to plan your finances early. Even if you cannot fully support your first year, please indicate your sources of partial funding. For visa purposes, you should not include potential merit-based scholarships or loans as sources of funding. International students are considered for merit scholarships and are eligible to apply for private loans.
- Permanent Foreign Address: According to the Federal Government SEVIS (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System) database regulations, all international students must provide a permanent foreign address in their country of citizenship even if they currently have a U.S. mailing address. If the mailing address you provided in Personal Information Part I is anything other than your permanent address in your country of citizenship, please provide this address in the International Student Supplement. Please do not list a Post Office box.
