Evidence of Financial Support

Alamance Community College is required by U.S. Government regulations to check the availability of adequate funding for your tuition, fees, and living expenses for the duration of your studies.  Therefore, you are required to submit a notarized ACC International Student Affidavit of Support Form with your application documents. The form is attached to the international student application, which is listed at the top of the page.

Note: The total funds on the affidavit(s) you submit – from personal sources, funding agencies, or both – must equal the total funds needed for the duration of your studies at ACC (at least two years).  However, you only need to submit evidence (bank statements, financial awards, etc.) to support your first year of study in the United States.  See estimated annual expenses here.


All students who apply to ACC and meet the international student admission requirements are accepted.  The ACC International Admissions Counselor will release an official acceptance letter and I-20 form to the applicant for use in applying for the F-1 visa in his/her home country.
