International Students

Are you an international student hoping to transfer to a different college? Perhaps this will actually be your first college experience. Whatever the case may be, you belong here. NDSCS is a great place to gain an education and to get your mind—and your hands—around learning. We’ll make the transition easy; all you have to do is apply!

Step 1

Request the International Application Packet from NDSCS. The packet includes:

  • Costs
  • Application
  • Housing Application
  • I-134 Affidavit of Support
  • Financial Certification
  • Maintaining your F-1 Visa
  • I-901 Fee Remittance
  • Catalog

Step 2

Complete the following information and submit it to NDSCS:

  • Application with the non-refundable $35 (U.S. funds) fee
  • Housing Application with the non-refundable $25 (U.S. funds) fee
  • Financial certification with all supporting documentation (such as bank statements, proper signatures, etc.)
  • High school educational records and/or college transcripts
  • Submit proof of immunization for measles, mumps, rubella, TB (mantoux), tetanus, and meningitis
  • Offical academic records

Step 3

Submit all paperwork to NDSCS for processing.

Once the application has been processed, the student will be issued a F-1 visa. The visa must be sent directly to the student whose name appears on the F-1. A visa can not be given to a third party. A visa can be sent overnight express but the student must pay for the overnight delivery fees. This generally costs about $75 (U.S. funds).

If the student has been approved to attend NDSCS, the student must fill out and submit the I-901 Fee Remittance to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The fee can be mailed or submitted at

Students must make an appointment at the U.S. Embassy with F-1 Visa in hand to receive proper authorization to attend.
