Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey
Can I use copies of my or my guarantor's tax return document (1040) from last year as the substitute for submitting the I-20 or DS-2019 Application and/or bank statements?

No. The tax return information from last year only tells us you or your sponsor’s income from last year. We need to know if you have the sufficient funds set aside for your studies at the Institute.

Do I need to submit any supporting documents with my I-20 or DS-2019 Application?

Yes. in addition to completing the I-20 or DS-2019 Application, you will need to provide a copy of your passport and evidence of your financial support. You or your financial guarantor needs to provide the Institute with the original bank statements (or scanned copies) that have been issued within the last 6 months for your I-20 or DS-2019 Application to be considered complete. You will need original bank documents to present for your visa interview.  If you decide to mail your documents to ISSS, all original bank documents will be sent back with your I-20 or DS-2019.
