International Student Visa Information
Non-U.S. citizens who are not U.S. legal permanent residents must have a non-immigrant visa status which allows them to enroll in courses full-time. Tourist status does not allow full-time study.
International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey will assist eligible students with obtaining a non-immigrant visa status. If visa support is needed, ISSS will reach out by email with specific instructions for non-U.S. citizens or non-U.S. permanent residents.
Most international students attend in F-1 (student) status. To be eligible to apply for F-1 status, you first must obtain an I-20 Certificate of Eligibility Form from Middlebury. Information about how to obtain the I-20 will be sent in the initial email from ISSS. ISSS also will provide information about the visa application process when they issue the I-20.
Please be aware that it can take several weeks after you submit the required documentation for ISSS to issue the I-20, at which point you will be able to apply for a visa appointment. ISSS is not able to issue an I-20 form until the non-refundable enrollment deposit has been received.
