    • Date account was opened.
    • Current account balance (showing a minimum of $17,500 on deposit).

If you plan to support yourself, an Affidavit of Support is not required. You must submit a letter from your bank with the above information and the bank account must be in your name.

If you have a family member or friend who lives in the Charlotte/Metro area and plans to provide you with housing free of charge, that person must submit a signed, notarized letter with a clear statement of intention to provide room & board free of charge for the duration of your studies. In such a case, the estimated living expenses of $8,500 per year do not have to be documented.

All financial documentation should accompany your International Student Application by the posted International Student Application deadline.
