International Student Deadlines

All forms must be submitted by the following dates:

  • June 15 for the Fall Semester
  • October 15 for the Spring Semester
  • March 15 for the Summer Semester

After all documents are received, they are reviewed for eligibility by the Director of Admissions.

The Form I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Non-Immigrant F-1 Student Visa Status) is issued to those applicants who meet all academic, financial support, and English language proficiency requirements for admission to a full-time degree program. A student copy of your I-20 will be mailed to you. It is the United States Department of State, not the college, that makes the decision to grant your F-1 Visa.

Before registering for classes, the student will be required to meet with the Director of Admissions. International students are charged out-of-state tuition and are not eligible for most financial assistance.
