Visa Process

Once a student has been offered a conditional appointment and presents evidence of adequate financial resources, the Office of Admissions will submit the necessary student information to the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service to begin the visa process. For more information on this process, please contact the Office of Admissions or the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service.

In addition to academic and visa requirements, all foreign students must meet the required VMI medical and physical standards.
