- (1) Documentation for Students in F-1 Status
International students in need of F-1 status must reach final acceptance by completing the initial admissions process and submit the following documentation prior to receiving the I-20:
- a. SEVIS Form I-20 Application
- b. Affidavit of Support(notarized) or Letter Sponsorship
- c. Verification of Funds from Student or Sponsor
(Note: We cannot accept faxes or unofficial photocopies of financial letters or bank statements. All financial information must be statements with dates no older than 2 months prior to the I-20 application date.)
- d. Copy of Valid Passport
- e. Copy of Current Student Visa (if applicable)
- f. Copy of I-94 Card (if available)
- g. I-901 fee processed
All students accepted into the Bachelor’s or Master’s programs must make a minimum deposit sufficient to cover 1 year of tuition for their first year. Only Cash or Certified Bank Check (USD) will be accepted for this payment.
(2) Important Information for Students in F-1 Status
- a. All F-1 students should be enrolled as full-time students each semester throughout their entire program. Students in the bachelor program must maintain four classes each semester (12 hours). These hours must be maintained and verified to avoid being out of your F-1 status.
- b. Students are responsible for notifying the International Student Office of any change in their personal information no later than 10 days after the change is implemented. (Example: address, telephone, etc.)
- c. Students must not engage in unauthorized employment. F-1 students are allowed to work in the U.S. with proper authorization from RU or the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). There are two types of employment available to F-1 students: On-Campus Employment and Practical Training. Please contact the ISO officer for more details. Immigration laws prohibit dependents in F-2 status from securing employment. Note: If you are currently a student at another institution and already have an F-1 visa, you need a new I-20 issued by Remnant University. Therefore, you must submit the I-20 application packet, transfer clearance form, a copy of your current visa, I-20, passport, and I-94, along with all other admissions requirements.
- Caution: Prospective Students are cautioned not to come to the United States on a visitor’s Visa and then attempt to get this changed to a Student Visa once they arrive in this country. The US Immigration Service considers this as coming to the US on false pretenses and may not approve such a request. The only exception is if individuals indicate to the US Consulate in their country in writing that the purpose of a visit to the US is to select a college.
