Are international applicants required to submit a financial statement?

No, international applicants who wish to be considered for TA or RA assistantships or fellowships are not required to submit a financial statement. The majority of applicants to whom we make offers are supported by assistantships or fellowships and, therefore, never need to provide a financial statement. However, in the cases where an international student plans to provide their own support (i.e., tuition and living expenses) to attend graduate school, the international applicant is required to provide a financial statement after an offer of admission without support is made. If an applicant will be supported by a fellowship from his or her native country, documentation of this financial support must be provided to the UA Graduate School at the time of application.
