    Financial Documentation

    The U.S. Government requires that we examine all international students' financial documentation. The financial verification portion of the admission application must be completed and the requested documentary evidence included with the application.

    To fulfill the financial documentation requirement, please send bank letters and/or official letters from your sponsor(s) to the Office of Undergraduate Admission.

    An I-20 cannot be issued without the appropriate supporting documents. If you have any questions, please contact the admission office at admission@hamline.edu or 1-800-753-9753.
