Please note the following details when completing the International Student Supplement of the online application.
The cost of tuition is the same for both international and domestic students. For visa purposes, international candidates must be prepared to pay the total cost of attending the program, including tuition, fees, and living expenses in New York during the summer term. Certification of this ability to fund your tuition and summer term living expenses must be provided in the International Student Supplement.
The International Student Supplement must be completed in full by all non-U.S. citizens, including non-resident aliens (those holding F, J, or trainee visas) and foreign government officials. U.S. Permanent Residents are not required to complete the International Student Supplement.
The International Student Supplement is divided into three sections:
- Visa status: If you are currently in the United States, list the type of visa you hold and the name of your sponsor.
- Funding: To obtain a student visa, you must demonstrate the ability to pay for your entire Summer term of study in the U.S. The funding section of the International Student Supplement helps you start preparing for the visa application process by encouraging you to plan your finances early. Even if you cannot fully support your year of study, please indicate your sources of partial funding. For visa purposes, you should not include potential merit-based scholarships or loans as sources of funding. International students are considered for merit scholarships and are eligible to apply for private loans.
- Permanent Foreign Address: According to the Federal Government SEVIS (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System) database regulations, all international students must provide a permanent foreign address in your country of citizenship even if you currently have a U.S. mailing address.
The information contained in the International Student Supplement does not impact your admission to the MS programs.
