International Student Visas

Technology & Media School is approved by the Department of Homeland Security’s Student Exchange and Visitor Program to receive non-immigrant foreign students.

Once a prospective student has been accepted by the school, the school issues an I-20 form which allows the student to submit an application for a M-1 visa for the duration of the program.

Once in possession of their M-1 form, the student must register with SEVP and then apply for the visa at a U.S. consulate near their residence. It is recommended to start the process four months at least ahead of the start of the program.

Students who have received a visa may arrive one month prior to the start of their program and stay one month after the end of their program.

Foreign students may apply for visas for the four 600-hour programs – coding, web design, video editing and audio editing.

Another program qualifies for visa application: IT for the financial industry. Admission requires six semesters of coding studies or two years of professional programming experience. The course covers various aspects and sectors of the financial industry for programmers.
