Admitted students will be issued a Form I-20 for an 18-month program of study, the average length of study for intensive English students.
Admitted students must provide a financial statement in the amount of at least $25,000, which is the cost of two 16-week sessions (living expenses included) in order to be issued an I-20. If you are not sure what a financial statement should look like, please view these samples: sample 1, sample 2, sample 3.
