In order to study in the United States, you will need to obtain a F-1 Student Visa. To apply, you must submit the following documentation to the United States Embassy or Consulate in your own country: a valid Form I-20 Certificate of Eligibility, a passport and evidence of financial support. Both the I-20 form and the financial verification form can be obtained from The Office of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS). For your convenience, you may also obtain a copy here.

ISSS is available to assist you with all questions regarding student related immigration documents and issues. To contact ISSS, you may visit them on the web at: http://www.stevens.edu/iss/.
Please Note: If you enter the United States on a visitor?s visa (B-2) without the ?Prospective Student? classification (issued only in exceptional circumstances), you will not be able to change to a student classification and may not be permitted to continue in school. In this case, you risk forfeiting your tuition. It is your responsibility to obtain the proper visa classification.
