International admission requirements

International applicants must be a graduate of a secondary school system or the equivalent, and must have sufficient proficiency of the English language to study at the college level. We are authorized to grant I-20 forms for the purposes of obtaining an F-1 student visa only. In order to receive an F-1 visa, you must be a full-time student.
