To study at a North American college or university, international students must obtain the appropriate visa from the North American Embassy and Consulates. Go Campus Overseas Educational Advisors counsel and support each applicant through the Visa application process. In order to maintain Visa status, Go Campus undergraduate students must be completing at least 12 hour credits per semester, and at least 9 graduate level credits for graduate students. In addition to it, Go Campus students must keep their I20 current and hold a valid passport.
SEVIS is an internet-based system that allows American colleges and universities and the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service to exchange and share information on the visa status of international students. Accurate and current information is transmitted electronically throughout an F-1 student’s academic career in the United States. U.S. embassies and consulates and ports of entry also have access to SEVIS.
