INTERNATIONAL ADMISSIONS PROCESS

Step 1

Apply to Jesus School

Apply for Jesus School and pay the application fee. Ask your references to fill in the reference forms online. After your application, your references, and your application fee have been received, you will have an interview. If you are accepted into the school, you will need to pay your deposit to receive your I-20 form to apply for your M-1 visa. Per SEVIS guidelines, I-20s will begin processing no sooner than six months prior to the start of the term you applied for at Jesus School.  All I-20s are processed on a first come first serve basis.

Step 2

Begin M-1 Visa
Application Process

Please allow a minimum of 30 days for your I-20 to be completed. You will receive a notification when it has been issued. The current status of your I-20 can be found on your profile page.

Step 4

US Embassy Appointment‚Äč

After you have received your I-20 and have paid your SEVIS fee, please make an appointment with the American Embassy in your country to get your M-1 visa. Canadians are exempt from this step. 

 

The following documents are required, so please be sure to bring them with you to your appointment:

    • Passport
    • I-20 form
    • Proof of funds for the year (amount needed is printed on your I-20 form)
    • Receipt from the payment for your I-901 form (SEVIS fee)

Step 5

Pay Tuition‚Äč

All International students are required to pay their full tuition by the International Payment Deadline. Without the payment you will not be able to register.

Upon acceptance, the $500 tuition deposit fee will be due. All tuition fees for international students must be paid in full by the international payment deadline date as we are unable to offer any installment plans for internationals. The international payment deadline is August 27th, 2023 at 11:59 pm EST. 

Non-registration may result in your M-1 Visa status being withdrawn, which will require you to return to your home country.

Step 6

Entering the US

You may arrive in the United States no more than 30 days before the first day of school. The following documents are required when you enter the country:

    • Passport
    • I-20 form with M-1 visa notation
    • Proof of funds for the year (amount needed is printed on your I-20 form)
    • Driving record in English from your country if you intend to drive (this helps keep your driver‚Äôs insurance low)
