Which Visa Is Best for You?
You need to apply for the visa that best describes the type of education you will receive. If you are planning to be a full-time student at a college or university, an F-1 visa is your best option.
F-1 visas also apply for students that are enrolled in American:
- Language training programs
- Academic high schools
- Educational institutions
If you wish to enroll in a vocational or non-academic program, you need to apply for an M visa. If you are hoping to come to the U.S. as part of a foreign exchange program, you need a J visa. F and J visa holders may be allowed to work in the U.S. with some restrictions. M visas have more limitations.
Proving Eligibility for a Student Visa
In order to apply for any student visa, you must prove your academic acceptance. The USCIS has a list of accepted educational programs. If your school is not on the list, it may jeopardize your chances for a visa.
You also have to show that you have a reasonable command of the English language unless you are planning to come to the U.S. to attend an English language-training program. The USCIS makes exceptions for those already enrolled in additional English language-training classes or who are attending a school where classes will be taught in their native language. Lastly, the USCIS will want to see evidence that you can afford your schooling.
