Apply for F-1 Student Visa

Accepted students are required to make a non-refundable enrollment deposit. After the enrollment deposit is received, MSOE will release the Certificate of Eligibility for F-1 Visa (Form I-20).

Once a student has received the Form I-20 from MSOE the student will go to the United States Consulate or Embassy in his/her country to apply for a student visa (F-1 visa). The student should take the following to the Consulate or Embassy:

  • I-20
  • SEVIS fee receipt
  • documentation of financial support (including undergraduate scholarship letter)
  • copies of any test scores including the TOEFL
  • passport
  • acceptance letter

The decision to grant or deny a visa to an applicant is that of the Consulate or Embassy official who reviews your application.

Students who are not granted a visa may re-apply.
