Use the Study Guide to the States

December 27, 2013
Use the Study Guide to the States to learn about the international student process.

From researching your school options in the United States to finishing a program of study, we have resources that can help you during the entire F and M student process. One example is our Study Guide to the States, an interactive guide with everything you need to know about attending a Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP)-certified school.

The Study Guide to the States is a great tool for a prospective student who wants to understand the F and M student process. The guide explains important steps like choosing an SEVP-certified school and paying your I-901 Student and Exchange Visitor Information System fee before you arrive in the United States. You also can learn about how to maintain your student status while in school and about options you may have after you complete your program of study.
