Information on Student Visas
Before leaving your home country, you must obtain a passport from your government and a visa from the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. If you are academically and financially accepted you will be sent a letter of admission. The appropriate form is an I-20. With this you may obtain a student visa (F1) for entry into the United States. The I-20 will be sent to you when we receive your fees and one half of the amount of one year's tuition, room and board. To meet U.S. Government regulations as a full-time, undergraduate student on the F-1 or J-1 visas, you must enroll for a minimum of 12 semester hours each semester enrolled. Applicants should check restrictions about off-campus work and length of stay on a student visa.
