Warren County Community College (WCCC) is authorized by the U. S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services to enroll international students with F-1 Visas and to issue the I-20 form necessary to obtain that Visa. Foreign citizens who are attending WCCC as F-1 students must be matriculated (enrolled in a degree program of study) and must be full-time students (enrolled in at least 12 credits of study). The summer semester is optional. Students may not be employed under an F-1 Visa. In addition, students must be completely self-supporting as financial assistance (grants, scholarships) is not available to International Students.
Individuals holding an F-1 student visa are considered non-residents in regard to tuition payments. Length of stay, payment of taxes, or ownership of property alone does not qualify students for the status of legal resident.
Federal law requires international students to document their financial ability to live and study in the U.S. WCCC policy requires sufficient proficiency in English, prior to admission for college study.
Individuals for whom an I-20 form has been submitted must enroll as full-time students during the fall and spring semesters and maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better at all times. Full-time status is achieved by registering for at least 12 credit hours each semester. Summer Semester is optional.
The Financial Support Statement that must be submitted certifies that the applicant has sufficient funds to pursue a full-time education in the United States. Therefore, F-1 students may not be employed, and understand that financial assistance is not available
Applicants must fulfill all admission requirements before an evaluation and decision can be made.
