Follow these steps:
You must have an e-mail address so we can notify you the status of your application. You should check your e-mail regularly for an update.
You do not need to have a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score to apply.
APPLICATIONS SHOULD BE STARTED AT LEAST THREE MONTHS BEFORE YOUR SESSION BEGINS, and they MUST be completed at least one month before the start of the session. We do NOT accept late applications. Applications completed after the deadline may not give you enough time to obtain your visa depending on the visa wait time in your country. In this case, your I-20 would have to be express mailed to you at your expense. To find out the visa wait time for your country go to travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/wait-times.html.
Once you have received the I-20 form, you will need to apply for your F-1 (student) visa at the American Consulate in your country before coming to the U.S.
To apply for F-1 (student) visa, first go to travel.state.gov for useful information.
