Documentation after admission

If you are admitted to the Jacobs School of Music, you must submit documents to the Office of International Services to prove that you have the financial means to support yourself for a full calendar year, including tuition, fees, and living expenses.

Your financial documents are not related to your admission decision. However, the Office of International Services cannot issue you an immigration document until you have provided sufficient evidence of financial support.

We encourage you to submit your financial documents as soon as possible. We will be able to finalize your application and process your necessary immigration documents sooner.
