Financial Verification

As per immigration regulations, international students who want to apply for an F-1 visa are required to prove the financial ability to pay for at least one year of college and living expenses before being issued an I-20.

Transfer from Another U.S. Institution

A student must be in F-1 status or eligible to change status to F-1 before the start of classes.  Your current university must complete our visa clearance form confirming that you are in good standing with your visa status.

Applying for an F-1 Visa

Once admitted, international students will be sent instructions on paying the SEVIS fee and how to apply for an F-1 visa.
