International Study Center
While you are studying online with us this fall, we know you will also be getting ready to join us in Boca Raton in person in January. Please read the information below about next steps for obtaining a student visa to come and study with us at the Lynn campus.
A visa allows a foreign citizen to travel to a U.S. port-of-entry and request permission from the U.S. immigration officer to enter the USA. It does not guarantee entry into the USA.
Most non-U.S. citizens who wish to study in the USA will seek an F-1 (non-immigrant) student visa, but there are other visa types that are sometimes authorized for those who study in the US. An F-1 visa is for people who want to study at an accredited U.S. university or to study English at a university or intensive English language institute.
Once you have been accepted in a program, provided the required financial documents and paid your deposit, Lynn University will issue a Form I-20 from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). You can then apply for a visa to study in the U.S. at Lynn.
After you obtain your visa, please review these next steps to prepare for your travel to the U.S.:
Semester tuition and fees are due 1 month prior to the semester start date or immediately upon receipt of a visa.
Please use your official name (name on your passport and what you used to apply to Lynn) on all forms and correspondence with the International Study Center.
