Q: How long will it take to get my visa?


Since every visa applicant must have an interview, obtaining a visa can be time consuming.  Students should plan ahead and submit their financial documents to Admissions as early as possible. Students should also pay their SEVIS fee on-line as soon as they receive their I-20 form (instructions on how to do this will accompany the I-20).  Students should also make their visa appointment as early as they can and should apply to the U.S. consulate in their home country.
