Our goal is to outline the process potential F-1 international students need to accomplish in order to be accepted and enrolled. We have included information on this page and on the pages to be downloaded that will be very helpful for students making the decision to attend and then apply and enroll to our college. Please review all materials carefully and then, download, complete and submit all forms.
