Fordham can assist admitted students in applying for an F-1 student visa at a United States Embassy or Consulate outside of the United States of America.
To apply for an F-1 student visa, you must have:
- an acceptance letter from Fordham University
- a Fordham I-20 document
To obtain a I-20 document, you must provide:
- a completed Application for Certificate of Eligibility (AFCOE)
- a supporting bank statement demonstrating proof of funding for at least one year of full-time study at Fordham University
- a copy of the information page of your passport
International Students Currently in the United States
Students in the United States currently in F-1 visa status also need to submit a Transfer Form completed by your current designated school official (DSO) in order to transfer your SEVIS record to Fordham University.
Students in the United States in a different (non-student) visa status, may be able to maintain their current status while pursuing full-time study at Fordham or may be able to obtain an F-1 student visa.
