Foreign students who will be attending a university, college, high school, private elementary school, seminary, conservatory or other academic institutions in the United States must apply for an F-1 student visa. Foreign students who will be attending nonacademic institutions and vocational programs must apply for M-1 student visas. As with any visa category, student visas require a significant amount of documentation, paperwork and preparation. In addition, all foreign student applicants must meet the Immigration and National Act requirements.

These include the following:

  • Acceptance at a recognized academic school
  • Sufficient financial assets to pursue the course of study
  • Sufficient preparation for the course of study
  • Intent to leave the United States after completing the course of study

Students applying for F-1 visas will also have to complete an interview process at their country’s respective U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Foreign students may also be able to obtain visas for their dependents. Known as F-2 visas, these nonimmigrant visas can allow a student’s spouse and / or children to accompany them to the United States. When applying for F-2 visas, students must complete all the necessary forms and applications and supply documentation proving their relationship to the applicants, such as marriage and birth certificates.
