Understanding the basics

The F-1 visa (Academic Student) allows you to enter the United States as a full-time student at an accredited college, university, seminary, conservatory, academic high school, elementary school, or other academic institution or in a language training program. You must be enrolled in a program or course of study that culminates in a degree, diploma, or certificate and your school must be authorized by the U.S. government to accept international students.

F-1 students may not work off-campus during the first academic year, but may accept on-campus employment subject to certain conditions and restrictions.

For F-1 students any off-campus employment must be related to their area of study and must be authorized prior to starting any work by the Designated School Official and USCIS.

How much does it cost to apply?
