Students must be able to finance a program of study without assistance from WSC. Download the Financial Resources Certification Form. This form must be filled out completely and correctly. Study in a foreign country always requires careful financial planning. International students accepted by WSC may enter the United States with an F-1 student visa. In accordance with U.S. Immigration Law, I-20 or F-1 visas can be issued only to persons who are pursuing a full-time course of study at an American college or university. Certificates of eligibility for visas cannot be issued until the student has proven ability to provide full financial support for the entire stay in this country. To obtain a certificate of eligibility, the Office of Admissions must be provided with official documents showing the source of funds for the entire period of study.
