Types of Student Visas

F-1 visas are the most common student visa. These visas allow a student to immigrate to the U.S. on a nonimmigrant visa with the sponsorship of a qualified college or university. Students may also apply for an M-1 visa if they hope to enter the U.S. as a vocational student with a qualified vocational or other non-academic training program. The qualification requirements for student visas, as provided by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, are as follows:

  • You must be enrolled in an "academic" educational program, a language-training program, or a vocational program
  • Your school must be approved by the USCIS
  • You must be enrolled as a full-time student at that institution
  • You must be proficient in English to be enrolled in courses leading to English proficiency
  • You must have sufficient funds available for self-support during the entire proposed course of study
  • You must maintain a residence abroad which you have no intention of giving up
