Financial Information for New Students

Students planning to attend UT in F-1 or J-1 status must request a Form I-20/DS-2019. Upon being admitted, students will receive a welcome email from Texas Global with instructions for using myIO. This online system will be used for submitting financial documentation and other information needed to issue the Form I-20/DS-2019.

When requesting the Form I-20/DS-2019, students must provide proof of sufficient funds to cover the estimated expenses for their first academic year of study as outlined below. While there is no specific deadline for students to submit their financial documents in myIO, this information should be submitted in a timely manner to initiate the I-20/DS-2019 issuance process.

2020-21 Estimated Cost of Attendance

Please note that if you have accompanying dependents (spouse & children under the age of 21) your estimated cost of attendance will be higher than the base cost of attendance listed below.

  • A Letter of Financial Support must be submitted when funding will be provided by an individual (e.g. relative, family member, etc.) other than the student.
