Financial Certificate and Visa Information
Upon admission and before the visa process can begin, international students must certify that they have funds to cover their expenses while attending Candler. This includes students who have been awarded fellowships, scholarships, or other financial support from Emory University.
Once you have accepted our offer of admission and paid the full deposit, International Student and Scholar Service (ISSS) office will contact you with Emory’s immigration sponsorship for your F-1 or J-1 student visa. You will receive an email from ISSS with detailed instructions of I-20 or DS-2019 request. Financial documentation will be required to complete the New Student I-20 Request e-form (this e-form will be included in ISSS email and can be accessed through ).

Documentation of additional financial support is required for spouses and/or children who plan to accompany the student on dependent visas. You are not required to submit this information when applying for admission.
