Applying for admission as an international student is a multi-step process. Your Designated School Official (DSO) will provide you with information and assistance for each step.
It is advisable that you send all the required documents listed on the Document Admission Checklist within the following guidelines:
First, you will submit all documentation required to attend Wilmington University as an international student. This includes all forms, fees, transcripts and any additional program-specific requirements. Once you have submitted all documentation and met all program entrance requirements, you will be issued the Form I-20.
With your Form I-20, you will pay the Student Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) fee. SEVIS is the interface between the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and Wilmington University, and is used to administer your I-20.
After the issuance of the Form I-20 and payment of the SEVIS fee, you will schedule a visa interview at the U.S. Embassy having jurisdiction over your location. Please visit the U.S. Embassy website for up-to-date information about Embassies and F-1 Visa application procedures.
