Procedures to Follow for Securing Your I-20 and F-1 Visa

  1. After your admission has been approved, you will be asked to submit a $500 enrollment deposit.  This deposit may be paid with a credit card by logging in to your MyStuff account. The enrollment deposit must be received prior to the issuance of your I-20. Please follow other guidelines as notified for a smooth enrollment.
  2. Once your I-20 is processed it will be mailed to you. When you receive your I-20 it is very important that you follow the appropriate steps for having your F-1 student visa issued. To obtain your student visa, please follow the instructions on the following Web site: Student Visas
  3. We recommend allowing up to 60 days for obtaining the student visa (F-1) from the American Consulate in your home country.
  4. If you already hold a valid student visa, and if you are currently registered with another college or university in the United States, please notify your Primary Designated School Official (PDSO) at your home school to have your foreign student records in SEVIS transferred to High Point University.  If you hold a valid I-20, it is valid until you register at High Point University.
