The following steps detail the requirements needed to apply, be accepted, and enroll. The Master's School is registered with SEVIS, the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System and is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students. The Master's School is authorized to issue Form I-20's to international students so they may acquire a F-1 Visa. In addition to the regular application for admission, international students must conduct a Skype interview with our Admissions Staff and submit a bank-verified financial statement as per the procedure detailed below.
Please note that the application process for international students can take between two to six weeks.
Please include the last two years of grade reports, translated into English, including any testing results, with your application. Official transcripts sent directly from the students' current schools are required, especially for high school students who will be applying to U.S. colleges and universities.
Confidential Financial Statement In order for The Master's School to issue a Form I-20, United States Immigration and Naturalization Services require that all parents of applicants submit proof of their ability to support their child's studies. This documentation is usually required when applying for an F-1 Visa, in which case you may submit a copy of the F-1 application instead of the Confidential Financial Statement. A $5,000 deposit is required before the process for the Form I-20 can begin.
Once you have submitted your forms to the Admissions Office, you are ready for a Skype interview. Please call 860-651-9361 and ask to speak with a representative from the Admissions Office. Admissions interviews generally take 30 minutes and are an informal, “get-to-know-you” time in which we will also look for English proficiency.
The Form I-20 is a certificate of eligibility for nonimmigrant F-1 student status, which will be mailed to confirm our educational contract. This Form I-20 is needed to apply for the F-1 Visa at United States embassies abroad. It is also needed to secure permission to transfer to The Master's School from another school in the United States in continued F-1 status. The Form I-20 will not be issued until the student has been accepted and the remaining documentation has been received in good order by The Master's School.
