International Applicants

USA Visa for International Students

International students need a US student visa in order to enter the United States. The University must process an I-20 form for the student to be able to request a visa from a US consulate. All necessary application requirements must be met before the I-20 student visa process for entry into the US can be initiated. Due to recent changes in visa processing, international students are encouraged to complete their applications as soon as possible. The visa process now includes coordination of two government agencies as well as the University of Oregon. The University has no time-line for the completion of the process. See the Office of International Affairs website for complete information on the USA visa process.
