Developing Whole Leaders for the whole World

Graduate School of Education

International students applying to Oral Roberts University are required by the Department of Homeland Security to document sufficient financial resources to meet the educational and living expenses while in the United States. Applicants are required to submit financial documentation that equals to or exceeds one full year of expenses. 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.

If you plan to bring any dependents, please increase the total guarantee amount with the appropriate spouse/child amounts indicated below.* The financial guarantee form should be completed by you, and if needed, by your sponsor. A sponsor may be a family member, a friend, an organization, a church, etc. An I-20 form will be issued when the guarantee information is received and the applicant has been admitted to ORU. 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.
