Students Seeking F-1 Status

Students seeking F-1 status for their studies at Loyola must submit all of the following documents:

PLEASE NOTE: Students in B-2, M-1, or F-2 status are not permitted to study full-time on this status at Loyola. If you hold one of these visa types, you must submit the documents below to switch to F-1 status. Note that in most cases, you will need to apply for an F-1 student visa at a U.S. Consulate outside of the U.S. prior to the start of your summer at Loyola.
  1. International Student Information Sheet
  2. Tuition payment of $3,355 (see Payment Options). Your Form I-20 will not be issued until tuition is paid. Tuition can be mailed by check (made out to Loyola University Maryland) or paid by wire transfer by the March 1st deadline.
  3. Copy of Passport (biographical page with expiration date).
  4. Affidavit of Financial Support: Self or Sponsor*
    1. *If the bank account is not in your name, your financial sponsor needs to submit a signed letter stating their relationship to you, that they are willing to be your financial sponsor, and a statement that verifies the money in the bank/financial documentation will be used for your studies and living expenses at Loyola. Please have your sponsor use this Affidavit of Financial Support. [A HARDCOPY OF THIS ITEM MUST BE MAILED TO GRETA AT THE ADDRESS BELOW]
  5. A hardcopy, original bank/financial statement (dated within one month of submitting documentation) verifying at least $7,000 USD (estimated cost of tuition, fees, books, and living expenses) are available to support your stay at Loyola for the Summer Session.

  8. Dependent Information Sheet - if you have a spouse and/or children under the age of 21 who are in the U.S. in F-2 status, they will be issued separate I-20 forms so they can obtain F-2 visas and enter the country with you or join you later.
