Non-Immigrant Student Visas

Students have a few different visa options to choose from if they wish to study, work, or learn in the United States. The team at The E.A. Wood Law Firm has experience handling each type of student visa.

F-1

This is the most common type of student visa, granted to students and researchers wishing to study/research at an accredited U.S. college, university, high school, elementary school, or other academic institution.

Students must be accepted to study at a recognized school as a full-time student. They must also have proof of enough financial support to cover expenses during their stay in the U.S. F-1 visa holders can remain in the U.S. as long as they are enrolled in an accredited academic institution.

J-1

Individuals participating in a work and study-based exchange visitor program may be eligible for the J-1 visa.

Qualifying applicants must:

  • Be proficient in English
  • Have sufficient medical insurance
  • Be sponsored by the government or a private program
  • Have proof of sufficient financial support for the duration of the program
  • Show that they have plans to return to their home country at a specific time

M-1

The M-1 visa is granted to individuals pursuing a course of study at a non-academic or vocational school. Applicants must meet the same requirements as the J-1 visa. M-1 visa holders may stay in the U.S. for the length of their program, plus 30 days after.
