If you are admitted and financial support is certified, Post University will issue a Form I-20/Certificate of Eligibility, which the international student needs in order to apply for a United States F-1 student visa. Post University is enrolled in the DHS Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) for electronic tracking of international students.
Please note that you must pay the SEVIS I-901 fee and the DS-160 visa insurance fee to DHS prior to applying for a visa. The process of applying for and receiving a F-1 visa varies from country to country and may take as long as three months.
The issuance of a Form I-20 and F-1 student visa constitutes a legal agreement with the United States. According to DHS, the definition of an F-1 student is a non-immigrant who is pursuing a “full course of study” towards a specific educational or professional objective at an academic institution in the United States. Once the educational or professional objectives have been attained, the F-1 student is expected by the United States to return to his or her residence abroad.
