International Applicant Resources


Commercial banks offer a greater variety of international services than savings banks. You will need your passport when opening an account.

The transfer of international currency may be time-consuming. Students may wish to bring enough money in traveler’s checks to cover their expenses for two weeks.

For personal security reasons, it is not common to carry large amounts of cash. US currency comes in two forms: paper and coin. US paper money, known as dollars, comes in denominations of $1, $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100. Common US coins are the penny (1 cent), nickel (5 cents), dime (10 cents) and the quarter (25 cents). One hundred (100) cents is equivalent to 1 dollar.
