International Students

Andrews University prides itself on it's diversity. Our international students contribute to the unique culture that is  Andrews University. Whether on-campus or off, Student Financial Services wants to help you understand the financial policies and processes at Andrews while helping you make informed financial decisions. Please select whether you plan to study on campus or off.

Applicants from outside the United States are required to supply support for sponsorships together with three months of bank documentation for all personal & family funds. These documents should prove financial ability to sustain educational expenses for the duration of the educational program, prior to the issuance of the I-20 form, to secure a U.S. student visa. Additionally, international students, excluding those from Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada and Mexico (graduate and undergraduate), are required to remit a $9,100 advance payment* for the first semester.

  •     $3,000 of the $9,100 will be held as a deposit in an interest-bearing account until program is completed or student withdraws.
  •     The deposit may be used to cover educational expenses for the last semester of enrollment.
    • A registration hold will be placed on your account when deposit is released. Deposit will need to be repaid before enrolling in another semester.
    • Deposit may be refunded if account is paid. Unless authorized, deposit will be refunded to payer.
    • If you do not attend, deposit will be refunded to the original payment method.
  •     $100 is posted to the student account as a non-refundable new student International fee.
