Graduate School of Education
International students must present documented evidence of the means of financing their education. Please refer to the ORU International Student Financial Guarantee Form located inside the International Application Booklet for acceptable forms of documentation. This form must include: your signature, bank stamp or seal, at least one full year's tuition expenses as mandated by the U.S. government, and both pages completely filled out in order for you visa application process to proceed smoothly.
Applicants for admission into the College of Education must document $22,250 in U.S. funds. An additional $6,000 of support must be documented if you intend on having your spouse accompany you to the U.S. An additional $4,000 for each child must be documented.
Careful consideration must be given to your financial arrangements as this will affect receipt of your student visa. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not allow students to work off-campus, and ORU may not be relied upon for financial assistance.
Students must arrive with enough funds to cover their first year's direct costs of $10,782.
