Before issuing an I-20, OIA must see at least $69,622 (plus $4,000 per dependent)* in funding for the first year of study which includes the mandatory international student health insurance**. After you submit your I-20 Request Form, OIA will review if/how much you received in financial aid from Juilliard and email you the remainder that you will be responsible for showing in additional financial documentation (i.e. non-Juilliard scholarship letters, loan approval documentation, personal/family bank statements, etc). This email will also contain specifics on additional documentation which you will be required to submit via your application status page.
*Please note that you should plan ahead for each year of study at Juilliard as the cost may increase, but any Juilliard scholarship amount will remain the same. Also, F-1 students are not eligible to work off-campus (paid or unpaid) until they have completed a full academic year at the college level. Therefore, new students should not have the expectation of working off-campus (i.e. performing, accompanying, teaching, etc.) to subsidize the cost of attendance. For more information on F-1 student employment, please click here.
**Please note, if you are the recipient of a Kovner Fellowship or in a degree program that provides a stipend to be used towards room & board and other personal expenses, you will still need to show funding in the amount of $2,124 as the Fellowship or program does not cover the cost of the mandatory international student health insurance. If you are an Artist Diploma student, your student account will be charged the student health insurance fee, health services fee, orientation fee, and the graduation fee. For more information on the cost of tuition and fees click here.
For personal, family, or sponsor funding, you must upload bank statements showing the last 3 months of account history to your application status page. If the student's name is not on the bank statements, a Financial Statement Support Letter must accompany the bank statements. Documents such as mortgages, life insurance, etc. are not acceptable forms of financial proof. Any other funding sources (i.e. government scholarships, corporate funding, etc.) must be on official letterhead and in English. More information on financial documentation requirements will be emailed to you after completion of this webform.
Currently in F-1 status? Complete OIA's SEVIS Transfer‐In Form to have your SEVIS record transferred to Juilliard. By transferring your record, you will not be required to pay the $200 SEVIS fee again or apply for a new visa (unless your current visa is expired and you are departing the U.S. before starting at Juilliard). You will also be required to provide OIA a copy of your current F-1 visa (except Canadians) and page 1 and 2 of your most recent I-20 via your application status page.
The I-20 Request Form must be submitted by June 15, 2018. Supporting documents such as bank statements or scholarship award letters can be submitted after June 15th. However, it is recommended that all documents are submitted to Juilliard by the mid-June deadline to ensure students have plenty of time to apply for a visa.
Please note that all new Juilliard international students (including former Pre-College students) must attend the mandatory International Student Orientation in the fall semester. International students who have on-campus housing will be allowed to move in starting on Friday, August 24.
International Student Orientation will take place on Saturday, August 25. Students must attend this orientation and the New Student Orientation.
