International Admitted Student Checklist

Confirmed Students

 After you have submitted your tuition deposit, please log in to your application portal where you will find a checklist of items that will guide you through a successful start to the Fall semester, including the I-20 process. Log in to get started now.   

Financial Aid

  • Submit the FAFSA (by 2 March for U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents only)
  • Student Accounts – Students must complete their financial arrangements no later than two weeks prior to the start of the semester. If you plan to live in student housing, your financial arrangements should ideally be made by 26 July. However, international students may work directly with Student Accounts to settle this upon arrival to campus. Completion of your financial arrangements means you have paid in full any balance not covered by financial aid or enrolled in a payment plan. To take advantage of extended payments and a low percentage down, you are encouraged to sign up for a payment plan as soon as you register.

Accessing MyLaVerne Directly.

  • If you have received your student ID number, and have not logged into MyLaVerne Directly, now is the time! MyLaVerne Directly is used to accept financial aid, applying for housing and eventually registering for classes- it is key that you begin using it right away. Please note that your “User ID” is your Student Identification Number and the “PIN” is your six-digit date of birth.

Confirm your spot.

  • Confirm your spot at La Verne. Log in to the application portal to submit your enrollment deposit. If you do not yet have an account, create one with the email address you used to apply to the university. The tuition deposit is non-refundable.
  • If you prefer to pay by check, please send one for US$200 to:

University of La Verne
Office of Undergraduate Admission

La Verne, CA 91750 USA

*Be  sure to include your student ID number in the memo section.

Financial Responsibility Agreement/Promissory Note

The I-20 Process

If you plan on transferring an active I-20 or need an initial I-20, you can start the process once you have confirmed your spot at La Verne. Log in to your application portal to review and submit the documents that must be submitted before we can issue your I-20. 

Submit your documents as soon as possible to process your I-20 and to avoid any delay in making a visa appointment. Instructions are located in the application portal.  


  • Submit all final, official transcripts and certified translations of courses and descriptions (if applicable) to the University of La Verne
  • Transfer Students: Access your Degree Evaluation on MyLaVerne to view what courses have transferred to La Verne within three to four weeks of receiving your admission letter; a hard copy will also be mailed to you. In order to be properly evaluated for your general education requirements, make sure to submit all college transcripts, college-level test scores, military documents, etc. at the time of admission.  This includes courses completed while you were concurrently enrolled in high school.  If you are currently enrolled at a college or university, be sure to submit your final transcript as soon as grades are officially posted.
