International Student Admissions

Applying for a United States Student Visa

In order for an international student (defined as any student holding a foreign passport) to enroll at a school in the United States, he or she must obtain an F-1 (or student) visa. U.S. embassies and consulates work from the same set of rules, which are then adapted to their host countries. Therefore you should inquire in advance about individual policies.

Students should plan ahead for their study in the U.S. and should allow plenty of time for visa processing. Keep in mind, however, that you should not apply for a student visa more than 90 days before the registration date noted on the I-20 form. The timetable for visa processing can vary widely depending on the volume of applications processed by an individual consulate or embassy. Notifications of acceptance or denial can range from one to ten weeks. June, July, and August are the busiest months for visa processing.

The I-20 Form

Brandon Hall School is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students. Prior to applying for an F-1 visa, you must complete Form I-20, Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status. The Form I-20 is a paper record of your information in the database called SEVIS. We will mail you a Form I-20. You will need to use that Form I-20 to pay the I-901 fee and to apply for the student visa.
