Additonal Steps for International Students
- After all application forms and information have been received, the Admissions Committee will make the decision regarding acceptance. If accepted, Piedmont must receive the funds in US dollars to cover the cost of the first year’s education. All funds are held as a deposit and are refundable until the first day of class. This amount may be obtained from the Piedmont Financial Aid Office and will include: tuition, room and board, all fees and books. Once these funds are received, an acceptance letter will be mailed to the student along with the I-20 form.
- Once you receive the I-20, submit the I-20 form to a United States Consulate or Embassy to obtain the “F-1” student visa, (The I-20 immigration document DOES NOT guarantee the issuance of the “F-1”student visa.)
