What is a student (F-1) visa?
The U.S. Embassy or Consulate in a foreign country issues a student (F-1) visa for the purpose of entering the United States for full-time study. Before you can apply for this visa, you must be admitted to a full-time program at NYU-SCPS. Once you have been admitted to a program, you will receive a document (I-20 Form) to present to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate to apply for your student (F-1) visa. Only the NYU Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) is authorized to issue the I-20 form.Bookmark This Link
