Financial Resources & Scholarships for International Students

Confidential Financial Statement

You must provide adequate financial documentation before your I-20 can be issued. Ellensburg campus students must complete the Confidential Financial Statement form (PDF) (or use this form (PDF) if you are attending a University Center). This form must be signed by the student and by the person who will be sponsoring the student financially.

Bank Statement

Along with the Confidential Financial Statement form, students must also submit a current bank statement. The bank statement should be in the name of the student's sponsor or the student, should be dated and no older than three months old by the time we receive it, and should be an original that is in English or translated into English. The bank statement should show that the account holder has the funds to pay for the estimated costs of attending CWU for at least one academic year. Refer to the Confidential Financial Statement form for the estimated costs. Please keep copies of your financial documentation for yourself, as you will need to present them to the U.S. Consulate when applying for your student visa
