Issuing the I-20 Form
Marywood-Palm Valley School is certified through the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) to issue the I-20 form needed for the F-1 student visa. Students must be officially accepted into the school to receive the I-20 form.
An international student must complete the admissions process to be officially accepted into the school. The admissions process for F-1 applicants includes submitting:
Once the I-20 form is issued, the family must pay the I-901 fee of $200 by visiting the SEVIS website. The family must submit the I-20 form and show proof of payment for the I-901 fee in order to obtain an F-1 student visa from the U.S. Embassy.
Because this process requires several weeks, international students should plan to submit all required admissions materials by March 15. Tuition and activity fees for international students must be collected before they can begin classes at MWPV.
