Information for International Students
RMSP welcomes students from all over the world. We are authorized to issue SEVIS I-20 forms to international
non-immigrant students in order to obtain M-1 student visas. Once you have completed the enrollment
requirements, we will issue you an I-20 form, which you can then take to your nearest U.S. consulate to obtain
a student visa. You must also prove to the consulate that you have the financial resources required for your
education and stay in the U.S. Refer to the State Department Web site at
for more information about student visas and travel in the U.S. You can also check www.nafsa.org
for foreign student information. We cannot predict how long your visa approval process will take, so we recommend
making a decision as early as possible.
