Requirements

Admission to a credit program is a selective process and international students must meet the requirements for admission. International applicants must have a complete file before they can be accepted to a credit program of study. Once official acceptance is granted, a letter is mailed to the applicant. The admissions assistant will then request that an F-­‐1student visa be issued to the accepted applicant by the DHS-­‐CIS.

*If transcripts are in a language other than English, an official translation is required. Foreign postsecondary educational credentials must have a course-­by-­course evaluation by an Independent Evaluation Service that is a member of NACES® -­ National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. Photocopies and faxes are not acceptable.

International Student Admissions – Student Visa – I-20

International students who either have an I-20 or who wish to get one are subject to electronic tracking requirements through The Department of Homeland Security, Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS), SEVIS program. International students who wish to have an I-20 issued so that they can apply to the U.S. embassy in their country for a student visa (F-1) to enter the United States and study must meet all the requirements listed on the Admissions Requirements for International Student Applicants information sheet.​

Please contact us if you have questions after reading the attachments. Our goal is to reply to emails within 48-hours of receipt, not including weekends or holidays.
