How to Qualify for a Student Visa

There are many different ways a foreign citizen can come to the United States. Two of the most common ways for visiting the United States are through arriving on a work visa or arriving as a full-time student on a student visa. Individuals wishing to further their education in the United States can do so by applying for a non-immigrant visa which will allow them entry to the country after it is approved.

Individuals on student visas must be enrolled in a course which will give them a diploma, degree or specific certification upon successful completion. In addition, the college, university, high school, elementary school, seminary or other training program must be authorized by the U.S. government to accept foreign students.
