|Non-immigrant alien students coming to the United States for the primary purpose of study should enter the U.S. on a student visa, or an F-1 visa. If you need a student visa, you should apply as soon as possible. Kaplan can help you process your application and send you the required paperwork, including an I-20 (See Financial Certification below) if necessary. But, you will still have to wait for your local US Embassy or Consulate to issue the student visa.|
Students who need an I-20 in order to apply for an F-1 Student Visa, to change to student status, or to transfer schools, must be able to document adequate financial support. Financial support must cover all expenses, including tuition, books, housing and meals, and related academic fees for the duration of program study. Kaplan estimates the average living expenses plus health insurance coverage to be a minimum of US $865 per month. For dependents, add US $400 per person per month for living expenses.
Financial support can be certified in any one of the following ways:
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security, is responsible for enforcing the laws regulating the admission of foreign-born individuals to the US and for administering various immigration benefits, including the naturalization of qualified applicants for U.S. citizenship. USCIS also works with the Department of State, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the United Nations in the admission and resettlement of refugees. USCIS is headed by a Commissioner who reports to the Attorney General.
You may need to contact the UCIS when changing your visa status, seeking employment or seeking reinstatement. However, if you are studying at a Kaplan English Programs center, you may work with the International Student Adviser to complete the process.
