International: Timeline for Application Review

International: Timeline for Application Review


The timeline for an international application to be processed, and the visa requirement

Timeline for Application Review

An international application takes six to eight weeks to be processed. Applications received after the posted deadline will only be considered for a later semester. Once the application is fully reviewed, you will be notified by mail of our admissions decision.

If you're accepted, you'll be mailed I-20 forms authorizing you to request an F-1 or M-1 Visa from the U.S. Embassy in your home country. If you're already living in the United States on another type of visa, you may be required to return to your home country to obtain the F-1 or M-1 Visa. It will be your responsibility to determine how to obtain an F-1 or M-1 Visa after A-B Tech has issued an I-20.
