There are still a few steps you need to complete before your first day of classes. Take a look at each item listed below and complete all of the necessary ones that pertain to you as soon as they’re available. Think of these steps as a road map to your future at AIC.
Part of your agreement with AIC and the US Government is to pay your tuition. For international students, we need to verify your funding sources to ensure that your balance will be covered. This is done once per degree level.
After completing your Initial Eligibility Questionnaire (IEQ), a personalized Affidavit of Financial Support will be sent directly to your AIC email account for your completion by AIC’s International Advisor. If you have not received this document after completing the IEQ, please email your Admissions Counselor. Along with this document, you will be required to provide proof of funds. Quite often, this is in the form of a stamped bank statement.
After receiving your Affidavit of Financial Support, the Office of International Student Life will issue your immigration document (I-20). This generally takes 2-3 weeks. This document will be emailed to you via the email address listed on your AIC application. This original document is needed for your visa appointment and all travel.
An I-901 or SEVIS Fee is used to maintain your student record and required by the US Government. It only needs to be completed once as long as you maintain active status. For many applicants, it can be completed via credit card here: fmjfee.com. This must be completed before applying for your student visa. Be sure to record your payment by keeping a copy of your receipt and send one to the Office of International Student Life.
After you receive your I-20, you will be ready to apply for your US visa. Instructions on how to apply for a US F-1 student visa can be found on the Applying for an F1 Student Visa page.
For International students, Summer Summit Day will be completed via a virtual course on Canvas. Virtual Summer Summit Day registration will open soon. Please check back for updates to register.
