As an international student, you will need to know a few additional enrollment criteria for admissions. After you have completed your Admissions Application and received a conditional letter of acceptance, you’ll receive a detailed email from us listing what documentation you’ll need to submit to receive an I-20 from us. A valid I-20 is required to apply for your F-1 Student Visa.
The I-20 is a document issued by a U.S. government-approved educational institution certifying that a student has been admitted to a full-time study program and has demonstrated sufficient financial resources to stay in the U.S. The I-20 is officially titled the “Certificate of Eligibility” because it allows an individual to apply for an F-1 student visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad.
You will need to provide several documents for your I-20:
Once you receive your I-20 from us, you must apply for your F-1 Visa and schedule an appointment for your visa interview – usually, at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in the country where you live. Wait times for interview appointments vary by location, season and visa category, so you should apply for your visa early.
PAYING FOR SCHOOL
Your TechKit® and first semester (4 months) tuition payment is due 30 days prior to your start date. Should you have any questions about this, reach out to our International Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have full-time, dedicated staff available to facilitate your transition to the United States. Our Housing Coordinator can assist you in finding living accommodations or selecting a student roommate.
Upon acceptance, you will be emailed a Housing Guide. Once you have been issued an I-20, our Housing Coordinator will be available to work with you one-on-one. Please note, the majority of our international students stay in a hotel or Airbnb for their first week or two to familiarize themselves with the area before choosing a long-term living arrangement.
