Requirements for an F-1 Student Visa

The F-1 visa enables foreign nationals to pursue a full course of academic study at a school approved by the Attorney General for non-immigrant students. In order to obtain an F-1 visa, a prospective student needs to apply initially to a school and be admitted. Then, the admitting school will provide an I-20 form which the student must present at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate abroad.

Requirements for an F-1 student visa includes the following:

  • Student must be enrolled in an academic education program and not a vocational program
  • Educational institution must be approved by USCIS
  • Student needs to have full-time academic obligations at the educational institution
