An accommodation deposit is due at the time that you reserve housing. All other fees payable to UW Oshkosh are due prior to the first day of class.
Fees payable to UW Oshkosh include housing, meals, books, student ID and health insurance. The housing fee is based on the lowest-cost accommodation in double rooms on the UW Oshkosh campus and includes the housing deposit. All students must purchase the UW Oshkosh insurance plan to be in compliance with U.S. Immigration policy and UW Oshkosh requirements.
In addition to fees owed to UW Oshkosh, you will incur personal expenses during your stay. On average, a student may spend approximately $1,000 each semester. Every individual’s spending habits are different; an individual student’s personal expenses may be higher or lower than the estimate. Applicants are responsible for U.S. government fees in relation to the visa application. As of September 2022, these fees were $220 for the US government SEVIS fee PLUS the in-country U.S. student visa fee.
APPLY FOR IMMIGRATION DOCUMENTATION
(I-20 OR DS-2019)
You may begin this step before you receive an admissions letter, or you may wait to hear the results of your Application for Admission before beginning. If the application deadline is soon, consider submitting these documents as soon after you have completed the above list as possible.
- Complete the UWO Immigration Document Application Form. ALL applicants complete this form regardless of the source of funding. This is the same form that you can use to apply for the International Student Need-Based Scholarship. You will use this form to upload the following documents:
- Evidence of Financial Resources. This can be an electronic or print copy of financial documents. If the statement is not in English, provide a letter from the financial institution confirming the amount.
- Copy of the biographical page of your passport.
- Optional: International Student Need-Based Scholarship Essay
- 500 – 1,000 word original essay addressing 1) your commitment to your own educational development and 2) your commitment to using your education and skills to contribute to your community. Demonstrate your commitment by discussing your extracurricular activities, leadership positions, volunteer work and/or other relevant activities.
- If you plan to bring one or more dependents (spouse/children) with you to the U.S., request the “Dependent Application” BEFORE you complete the UWO Immigration Document Application Form.
UW Oshkosh will issue a Form I-20 or DS-2019 only after admission by the Admissions Office and verification of adequate financial resources as required by federal regulations. UW Oshkosh encourages the enrollment of qualified international students in suitable programs and seeks to attract students whose academic potential has already been recognized in their home countries. An international student is classified for educational purposes as a person who is a citizen or permanent resident of a country other than the United States. UW Oshkosh is authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students. The Office of International Education is responsible for ensuring that the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh complies with all applicable laws set forth by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Department of State, and other government agencies.
