International Students

In addition to the application materials required for all students, international students must provide three additional items:

In completing your online application: if you do not have a social security number, leave that space blank. Upon admission to the UO a nine-digit student number will be assigned to you in lieu of a social security number.

Proof of financial ability can take the form of a letter from the student’s/parents’/sponsor’s bank, a letter awarding a scholarship or government loan, or an affidavit of support (I-134).

Upon verification of the student’s financial ability to pay for educational and living experiences, the UO will issue a Certificate of Eligibility (I-20), which is required in order for a student to apply for a visa.

Send the Financial Statement and bank statement (if requested by the UO Admissions Office) to:

Office of Admissions
240 Oregon Hall
1217 University of Oregon
Eugene, OR 97403-1217
