In order to study in the U.S., international students must obtain a student visa. Providence College will issue the Form I-20, which you will need in order to obtain a student visa. The process of obtaining the I-20 form from Providence College is as follows:
Upon receipt of the above, Providence College will issue your I-20 and send it to your home address. We are not able to scan and send the form or SEVIS number electronically. This process can take multiple weeks to complete. Once you have received the I-20, you may login to the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) submit the required I-901 form and fee. You will then be able to make an appointment with the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security: Study in the States website provides information on how to make your American Embassy or Consulate appointment, as well as how to prepare for your interview.
