ESTABLISHING YOUR VISA STATUS: Once you’ve received your I-20, the next steps depend on if you’re already in the US or not:

 

  • Out-of-Country Applicants

 

      • You will pay a $350 I-901 fee by clicking here.
        • You only need to pay this fee for the F-1 student, (not any F-2 dependents).
        • It’s very important that you keep the receipt for your payment!
        • The SEVIS ID you provide for your I-901 fee must match the SEVIS ID found on your I-20.
      • You will complete a DS-160: Online Nonimmigrant Visa Application by applying online here. Contact us if you need help.
      • Access your Embassy or Consulate website, in order to schedule an interview and pay the $160 visa processing fee.
      • Students must bring required documents to their scheduled interview at the embassy or consulate, including:
        • Passport
        • I-20
        • Receipt for I-901 payment
        • Other supporting documents (e.g. those supporting the connection of dependents, etc.). Make sure you inquire with the embassy for a full list of the documents they will expect.
      • If your F-1 visa is approved, you must report to a US port of entry for a scheduled arrival in the US up to 30 days prior to the program start date.
      • Customs and Border Protection will review your visa and other documentation, and, if approved, issue an I-94 that will permit entry to the US and will be valid for the Duration of Status (i.e. you are permitted to remain in the US as long as you maintain your F-1 status)
      • We will invoice you for your second month’s tuition payment, which you must complete on or before your program start date.
      • You must report to Liberty on the start date shown on your I-20.

 

 

 

      • If you are transferring to Liberty from another school, you must request your transfer and be released from your previous school on their release date.
      • You may only be issued a new I-20 from Liberty after you have been released from their previous school.
      • You must contact a Liberty DSO staff member within 15 days of the program start date listed on their new I-20, and must report to class by that date.
      • You must make your first payment to Liberty 15 days prior to the program start date.
      • If you are transferring to Liberty from a different school after having entered the country but before reporting to the school that issued the original I-20, you must report to Liberty and begin studies within 30 days of entry into the country.

 

 

 

      • If you have a different class of nonimmigrant visa (e.g., J-1), or your F-1 visa status is terminated, you must follow these procedures:
      • You will pay a $200 I-901 fee by clicking here.
        • You only need to pay this fee for the F-1 student, (not any F-2 dependents).
        • It’s very important that you keep the receipt for your payment!
        • The SEVIS ID you provide for your I-901 fee must match the SEVIS ID found on your I-20.
      • You will file an I-539 Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status. The form is available here.
        • The I-539 application has a filing fee of $370, and…
        • …an $85 biometric fee per applicant (i.e., the F-1 student and all F-2 dependents)
        • Instructions for the I-539 form are here.
      • Once your I-539 form is reviewed and approved by USCIS, you will receive your official program start date.
