Admitted International Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to Rollins! Before beginning classes, there are a few things you need to know. 

Our office will send you an email with detailed instructions about logging into the Admitted Student Portal. On this website, under the International Students tab, you'll find all necessary forms (like the visa information sheet and financial certificate form) and next steps for getting everything in order. You will receive necessary login information in your acceptance email.

Financial Certificate and Financial Verification Process

Rollins requires that all admitted international students provide documentation by June 15 verifying that they have the funds to pay for *tuition and estimated living expenses for one year. Emory will not initiate the visa process until all of your financial documentation is in. So, once you find out you've confirmed your enrollment, filling out the financial certificate form on the Admitted Student Portal is your first priority.

International students, read about funding resources and a list of sponsoring agencies.

If you plan on bringing a family member with you, you will need to confirm that you have the funds to accommodate them, too. Make sure you study the financial certificate instructions for the specifics. Likewise, if you are bringing dependents with you while you're in school, you'll need to complete the I-20 dependent processing section of your financial certificate form. A dependent I-20 will then be created for them to accompany you to the U.S.

If you are attending Rollins on scholarship, fellowship, or a sponsoring agency, you will need to forward the financial certificate form to these sponsoring agencies to complete on your behalf.

Check out these tips for financing your degree.

For students on a partial scholarship or sponsorship, please follow the steps listed in the financial certificate instructions.

Note: Actual expenditure may vary depending on the sources of funding as well as individual standards of living.

Helpful Tips

  • All paperwork should be filled out in English.
  • All documents should be originals.
  • Scan a copy of your passport to use when requesting your I-20. You won't be able to get your I-20 without it.
