Academic credential standards:
Financial Proof Standards:
Southeast Missouri State University is required by law to verify and retain valid financial information on international applicants who will study on a F-1 or J-1 student visa. This includes proof of funds (Affidavit of Support and Financial Verification) to cover anticipated expenses over the duration of their stay in the U.S. Financial documentation must be submitted along with other application materials in order for us to make an admission decision and issue immigration documents, once admitted if required.
In most cases, the documentation we require will also be required at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate when applying for the visa. We recommend the applicant keep a copy of the financial proof submitted to the university for that purpose.
Translation service recommendations:
You are not required to use any of these translation agencies. There are many translation services available.
Fall Semester - June 1st
Spring Semester - October 1st

*Students taking undergraduate or graduate courses may only apply for spring or fall. Any summer IEP student who submits a passing English proficiency test score may begin degree studies only in the following spring or fall term.
We do not guarantee offering an acceptance letter or issuing the I-20/DS 2019 after these dates. However, late applications may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
