Financing Your Education at Marymount:
Most students live on a limited budget. It is important that you learn how to manage your money well while studying in the United States. Familiarize yourself with the value of the dollar and never carry large amounts of cash with you or leave it in your room or apartment.
When planning a budget to finance your education in the US you need to include costs for tuition, housing, food, health insurance, transportation, books and other additional expenses. In order to obtain the immigration documents to be eligible for an international student visa F-1, Homeland Security requires students to demonstrate an official copy of the bank statements showing the total amounts below based on your program. Regardless of if you will live on or off-campus, or you will have more affordable accommodations, you still need to show the estimated amount to cover all living expenses around campus.
If you have been awarded a scholarship or a Graduate assistantship from Marymount, you may deduct the scholarship amount and demonstrate the remaining funds in a bank statement plus the letter that confirms the award.
Students sponsored by their government or other institutions will provide a financial guarantee from their sponsor that should be valid within the next year.

Managing your personal finances
In the United States, it is customary to pay by debit card, credit card or check, rather than using cash, because it is generally safer. It is recommended that you open a bank account as soon as you arrive in the U.S. This will give you access to your money easily and safely for paying any bills by check and for obtaining a debit card. There are several commercial banks within walking distance of the University, but Marymount University has a partnership with PNC which many international students use. Most banks offer similar services although the service fees might differ.
