    b) If a student has a sponsor, the evidence must be from the sponsor, not from the student:
    i) If the sponsor is in the United States, the sponsor must complete an Affidavit of Support (I-134 Form). This Form can be picked up at Mentora or downloaded from the USCIS website (www.uscis.gov).
    ii) If the sponsor is outside the United States, the sponsor must write a simple letter stating he/she will be financially responsible for the student.
