Application Tips
  1. Use your full legal name on all documents
    Always use your full legal name as it appears on your passport when completing your admissions, TOEFL, and SAT/ACT applications. We will not be able to issue the necessary immigration documents if the name you provide on your application is different from your name as it appears on your passport.

  2. Do not list a PO Box as permanent address
    In order for the Office of International Services to issue your I-20 form, the permanent home address listed on your application for admission must be a foreign physical address.
