          Edinboro University provides non-immigrant students with a life-changing experience.

          After receiving your offer of admission, you will need to apply for a student visa. You must follow the regulations established by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on how to obtain and maintain lawful student (F-1/J-1) status while studying in the United States.

          I-20 Certificate of Eligibility for Non-Immigrant (F-1) Student Status for Academic & Language Students

          The I-20 is issued by Edinboro University to students eligible to apply for an F-1 student visa (Form I-20). The I-20 is issued after an offer of admission is accepted by payment of the required deposit and receipt of proof of your ability to meet the associated educational expenses.
