    Getting your visa

    International students must obtain visas in order to study in the United States. Our international admissions department helps facilitate the visa application process by sending an I-20 form shortly after a student has been admitted to the university. Students can apply for the following types of visas:

    • F-1, or Student Visa: This visa type is the most common among our international students.  
    • M-1, or Student Visa: This visa is for students in non-academic learning environments or vocational training.
    • H-3, or Training Visa. This visa allows people to enter the US to complete training programs that are unavailable in their home countries.
