You will need proof of funds. E.g. if the person is providing a specific amount towards your tuition, etc, they should put those funds in escrow with an attorney & provide a "lawyer letter" attesting to the amount of funds held in escrow, and arrangements made to pay that to the school when you enroll. If the "gift" is more than amount specifically exempted under IRS Gift Tax law, proof of paying the Gift Tax may be required. If this is a relative, since you have "ties" to the US, expect difficulty getting a student visa. Also, open-ended "guarantees" may have serious issues, including paying the Gift Taxes to IRS. The donor must provide proof of funds, in ready cash, to pay your bills! The donor is limited to gift of $14,000, without any gift tax due, OR money paid for TUITION ONLY is tax-exempt. Otherwise, in addition to what they gift you, they may have to pay up to 40% in TAXES!
