An international student needs the F-1 Visa to legally enter the U.S. for the purpose of studying in a U.S. Institution.

The international student’s spouse and children need the F-2 Visa to legally enter the U.S.

The F Visa is a U.S. State Department document that can only be obtained at the U.S. Consulate in the student’s home country.

Steps for Obtaining the F-1 or F-2 Visa:

  1. Submit College admissions application.
  2. Receive notification of College admissions.
  3. Submit completed Pre-I-20 application to ISSO.
  4. ISSO reviews Affidavit of Support and determines financial eligibility for issuance of the I-20.
    See Pre I-20 Package.
  5. ISSO mails I-20 document(s) to student (and dependents).
  6. Student (and dependents) receive I-20, pay SEVIS I-90 fee and make an appointment at the U.S. Consulate.
  7. Upon receiving the I-20, you and/or your dependents, will need to make an appointment at the U.S. Consulate to apply for the F-1 Student Visa, F-2 Dependent Visa.
  8. Take a valid passport, I-20 , Financial Documents and the SEVIS I-901 payment receipt to the U.S. Consulate to apply for the F Visa.
  9. After receiving the F-1 Visa, you are ready to enter the U.S.
  10. Once you arrive at a U.S. Port of Entry via air, train or car, you will be required to complete the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) documents known as the I-94 Departure Card (also known as the I-94 Number or I-94 Admissions Card.)
  11. At the U.S. Port of Entry present the following documents:  valid passport with the F-1 Visa, I-20 and I-94 Card to the U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization Service (USCIS) Officer.
  12. Report to ISSO within 2-3 days of your U.S arrival. Bring your passport, I-94, F Visa & I-20 with you.
  13. Once you report to ISSO, the USCIS Designated School Official (DSO) will notify SEVIS(Students Exchange Visitor Information System) of your arrival at the College and provide you with a Visa/Immigration and College orientation.
