International sponsored students have unique needs in the sense that in addition to complying with immigration rules, this specific student population must also follow their sponsors’ requirements to maintain their funding through degree completion. Sponsors request letters from the university before reviewing requests for program extension, change of major, reduced enrollment, etc. Sponsors also request letters to monitor students’ academic progress and expected program completion.

Below is a chart outlining common letters that we are able to provide, and letters that we ask academic advisors to prepare when the information requested is academic in nature:


Sponsored Student Programs

Enrollment Report

Online Enrollment Report (current & historical)

Concurrent Enrollment Report

Change of Major / Degree Report

Term Dates

Student’s immigration status

Generic Study Plan for baccalaureate degrees published on department/program websites (undergraduates only)


Academic Advisor

Progress Report

Transfer Credit Evaluation

(Initial letter requested by transfer students)

Need for Tutoring

Any other letters related to academic progress

Sponsored students may initiate their letter request by contacting our team. If the letter requested by the student must be written by the academic department, we forward the request to the student’s academic advisor.
