International Students

A Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20) will not be issued until all required forms are completed and returned with support documents to the College of Western Idaho.

The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services requires an international student to show evidence of adequate financial support for one academic year (9 months) and a plan for continued funding for subsequent years. This form is not an application for financial assistance. This form is required for admission to CWI.

The accuracy of the following information is very important to us in order to complete your I-20. Please complete and return to the College of Western Idaho with your admission application.
