How to apply to US universities

We’ve made the application process as simple as possible, with 4 steps to US university admission:

  1. Fill in your application form, and upload supporting documents, including academic transcripts.
  2. We will review your application and, when it is complete, we submit it to the University within 24 hours. You’ll be notified as soon as the University has made its admission decision.
  3. Once you accept your offer of admission, you’ll be advised how to pay your deposit (if there is one), and show proof of finances to cover your study and living costs for one year.
  4. When you receive an I-20 form, you are eligible to apply for your student visa. You can interview for your visa as early as 120 days before the start date listed on your I-20.

Our staff can give you guidance throughout the process. Contact us if you have any questions.
