Accepted International Student
Congratulations on your acceptance to the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University. Please review the information enclosed in your enrollment packet for timelines, contacts, and important steps ahead. Please contact the Admission Office if you have any questions.
Steps Ahead for Accepted International Students:
- Enroll by submitting your $500 enrollment deposit online. (For bank wire transfer information, click here for CSB and here for SJU.)
- As you carefully consider your options and financial situation and if you wish to enroll, you will then need to send the completed International Student Certification of Finances (along with a bank and/or income statement) indicating the sources of funding. This is to show that there is indeed “sufficient funding” available to cover your cost of attending CSB+SJU after subtracting the CSB+SJU scholarship from our total cost of tuition, room and board. This documentation will be needed for us to send an I-20 form which you will need to apply for an F1 student visa to study in the U.S.
- After you are officially enrolled, there will be many important forms in the Forms Portal to complete. The important forms for students starting in the Fall Semester are available February 1. Please note: The portal to access these important forms will be accessible to students one week after the enrollment deposit has been received.
