All international students and their dependents must obtain the appropriate immigration documents required to enter the U.S. prior to beginning the Intensive English Program.
In order for a new international participant to receive a U.S. visa to study in the IEP program, the applicant must:
Applicants who meet all requirements will be issued either an I-20 (F visa) or a DS-2019 (J visa). This documentation will be used by an international participant to apply for F-1 or J-1 status visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate. Dependents of current F-2 and J-2 participants are eligible to study in the program. Participants with an F-2 visa may study part-time, and participants with a J-2 visa may study full-time.
The Office of International Student and Scholar Services will help with all visa-related questions and paperwork. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: If an international participant wants to bring a spouse or dependents, additional financial support must be demonstrated for the issuance of the F2/J2 dependent I-20/DS-2019 form. Add $1,167 for your spouse and $1,000 for each dependent child for each 12-week term of study.
Below is the Intensive English Program application form. Once the application form has been completed, you should receive an acceptance letter within 5 – 7 days. The acceptance letter includes instructions regarding submitting additional information in order to process your I-20 form. We recommend you begin preparing a copy of your passport and any financial documentation you will be submitting. If you are planning on bringing any dependents (spouse and/or children), we will need copies of their passports, marriage license/family card (spouse) and/or birth certificate (children).
Note: If you are currently living overseas and/or would like your I-20 form sent to an overseas address, we highly recommend using our eShipGlobal service. For students in some countries (e.g. Saudi Arabia) this is the only way we recommend for delivery. For more information about the eShipGlobal service, please refer to your acceptance letter.
