Financial Requirements for I-20

 

The following information indicates how much financial support a student must show for an academic year for ISSS to issue an I-20 according to:

  • Degree level (Graduate or Undergraduate)
  • Tuition & fees rate, which depends on:
    • Residency Status
      • In-state status (also known as "resident") is for those who (1) completed high school in New Mexico; (2) are recipients of International Competitive Scholarship; or (3) are graduate students with more than 10 hours of assistantship
      • Out-of-state status (also known as "non-resident") is for international students who did not meet the abovementioned "in-state" criteria
    • Descubre Program
      • For qualified Mexican nationals on Las Cruces Main Campus only
    • NMSU campus
      • DACC, Alamogordo, Carlsbad, and Grants branch campuses do not have the same undergraduate tuition rates as the Las Cruces Main Campus
  • Dependents – if any (add $4,000 for spouse and add $2,500 for each child.)
