Confidential Financial Certification

The Department of Homeland Security/SEVIS requires all international applicants provide evidence of sufficient funds available for their studies. UNLV requires each international student fill out the Confidential Financial Certification form for the academic year in which they are admitted. In addition to the CFC form, international students must submit proof of funding by providing a bank letter signed by an authorized bank representative (personal funds/guarantor funds), confirmation of scholarship and/or confirmation of a Graduate Assistantship.

Please note that an I-20 will not be issued without receipt of your CFC and proper funding information.

I-20 Shipping Information

International students have the option to purchase express shipping to receive their I-20. UNLV uses an express mail service, eshipglobal, which allows international students to receive their I-20 and acceptance letter within 3-5 days. Tracking numbers are provided for express shipments. Express shipping is at the student’s expense and is not mandatory. Please be aware that if express shipping is not purchased the I-20 will be sent regular mail and can take a minimum of 20 days to reach some international locations. Tracking numbers are not provided for shipments sent regular mail.
