  • After the admission requirements are met, you will receive an Acceptance Letter and the school will send the Enrollment Agreement for you to sign
  • Sign the enrollment agreement
  • Pay I-20 processing fee of $200 (non-refundable).*

* Students, who are applying at Bristol University under an F-1 Visa and pay the $200.00 processing fee, will have the $200 credited back to tuition after the completion of one semester.

Step 3:

The University will issue an I-20. Make sure every information on your I-20 is correct. If there is a mistake, please call or email us IMMEDIATELY to resolve the matter and prevent any delay. It can usually take up to 7 business days for I-20 to be processed and another possibly 5 days to ship to whichever country the student is in.

Applying for VISA:

* Make sure you already obtained our I-20 before starting this process.

Step 1:

Fill in form DS-160 online. Make sure every information you put in is correct, you can save the draft and revisit until you are certain. You cannot change any information once you submit the form. If you need help, please consult an immigration specialist or an immigration lawyer. You will need DS-160 confirmation number to schedule an interview. Make sure to print out your DS-160 confirmation after you finish.

Step 2:

After you finish form DS-160, you will need to pay the SEVIS fee. It could be paid online or through a designated location (Please refer to your home country’s U.S Embassy website for more information on the location). You will need to complete form “I-20 Form” on this website using the University’s I-20. You must keep the receipt to schedule the VISA interview.

Do not pay for a dependent child or spouse who is on an F-2 visa. There is no I-901 SEVIS Fee due for a dependent child or spouse for these visa types.

Fee: Please refer to the SEVIS website.

Step 3:

Now, you will need to sign in to your file with the information you used for the SEVIS Payment. Schedule your nonimmigrant visa interview appointment. You will need the followings:

  • Passport number.
  • SEVIS payment confirmation number.
  • The barcode consists of a combination of ten (10) characters appears on the DS-160 confirmation page.

Please refer to your home country’s U.S Embassy website to find the nearest location. Make sure you print out your appointment receipt.

NOTE: Some countries also require applicants to pay a visa fee to make an appointment for VISA interview. This is different from the SEVIS I-901 fee and it varies from country to country. Please refer to your home country’s U.S Embassy website for the exact amount.

At the Interview

Go to the VISA interview appointment on the day, time, and location you have scheduled for. Show up on time!!! You will need to bring the followings:

  • I-20 – Issued by the school.
  • Passport – You may not use a passport that is within 6 months of its expiration date.
  • SEVIS Receipt, bring it to the interview (very important).
  • Appointment receipt.
  • Bring two (2) head-shot photos with white background, size 5x5cm or 2x2 inches.
  • Any supporting documents that may be asked during the interview.

Visa Approval/Denial:

  • If your visa is approved, your new visa (along with your passport) will be sent to your home address (it may vary from country to country).
     
  • If your visa is denied, there are 2 options for you:

1) You can try applying for a Visa interview again. Remember that you can always go to the visa interview one more time if the start dates on your I-20 have not passed. So, plan your visa interview early! However, if your I-20 start date already passed, you will need to re-apply again to a new start date.

2) If the student still got his visa rejected, you can choose to study with our online program in your home country.

Coming to the US/University:

  • Inform us of the day you are coming
  • Contact us if you need any support/advice on accommodation and airport pickup (fees may apply).
  • Report to the school no later than 10 days of your arrival. This is MANDATORY.
