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:

  • Seminaries
  • Conservatories
  • 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.

    “ He handled my immigration case and he did so with confidence from the outset and l believed in him and of course everything turned out great (not that I thought otherwise).”

    Simone

  • He listened to me, even if he was going in to court and being so caring of nature he would understand and this was the most important trait as he felt more like a friend than the clean cut suave lawyer I hired.
