Visas and Application Deadlines.

Anyone coming to the U.S. with the sole intention of studying has to get a student visa. A visa allows you to travel to a Port of Entry of the United States (usually an airport); it does not grant you permission to enter the country or stay for any length of time.

Once you have been accepted, you will be sent an I-20 form. This form needs to be taken to a U.S. Consultate or Embassy, together with a valid passport and a bank statement or letter from your banker or corporate sponsor written on letterhead, which shows funds in excess of the total amount listed on. After the application has been processed and accepted by the U.S. Consulate or Embassy the student will receive a Student (F-1) Visa.

To qualify for a student visa (F-1), you have to register for the full-time English language course. Click here for more information about getting a visa and to review frequently asked questions about student visas.

Before we issue the I-20 we will also have to receive documentary evidence that you have sufficient funds for your stay here in USA. A copy of your passport is also required. If you request the I-20 form, then this documentary evidence and the copy of your passport must accompany your application (if you apply online, you may fax the documents to +1 (561) 629-5983 or you can scan the documents and send them by e-mail to info@eslinusa.com). We are obliged to hold this information on file for the immigration authorities.

The documentary evidence can be either of the following:

  1. Supporting evidence of financial means (e.g. a recent bank statement) to cover tuition and living expenses for the duration of their stay
  2. A supporting letter of financial responsibility from the parent accompanied by evidence of financial means.
  3. A letter of sponsorship from a company or organization together with evidence of financial means.

For applicants who have a private financial sponsor who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, I-134 Affidavit of Support Form form must be filled out, notarized, and submitted by the sponsor.

Please note that students will also have to provide this evidence at their USA Embassy (Consulate) when processing their visa.

It takes time to obtain a student visa. Please apply as early as possible. Normally, we must receive your application no later than 45 days before the program starts. If you are already in the US and are a citizen or permanent resident, we can accept your application at any time. Please note: acceptance of all applications is subject to space availability. We recommend to apply as far in advance as possible.

If you are an F1 student currently in the United States, you can transfer to our school. Please send us your application and we will send you our Transfer Form upon your registation. You will need to bring this form to your current school's student advisor and ask them to return the form to us by fax. We can also help you change your status to F-1 student status.
