Application Process for International students
I applied to come and study in the US from Cameroon. I also got my student visa from the U.S. Embassy in Cameroon. Just to add to this I believe a lot of the African countries will go through the same procedure I went through to get my visa or to come and study here at MiraCosta college.
Putting Your Documents Together For college
Tip #1: Take a TOEFL test and get at least a score of 46 or higher. If you don’t have a Pass TOEFL Test score, you can apply to study English before starting college classes. Once you have your TOEFL score, make a copy of all educational diplomas, and birth certificate and get them certified by a government official
Tip #2: Complete applications at least 4-5 months before you want to study
At MiraCosta you can type and print the International Student Application form. Click on the link and type your answers.
Tip #3: Keep in touch with the International Office Please If you have any questions make sure to contact the international office. either by email or by phone
Don’t forget that most countries don’t have the same time as the US, so when calling take that into consideration. (Time difference)
Tip #4 After you get admitted to college, you can get help to apply for the F-1 student visa
MiraCosta College will send you forms you need to apply for the student visa at the U.S. Embassy. If you have any question please don;t heisted to call or email us, we are more than happy to help you.
Tip#5 Once you get your visa What do you do?
Once you have your visa, the earliest you can come to the Us is one month or 30 days before your school stat, that way you can get use to the weather, and take care of the other documents that you need once you reach the US.
Unfortunately, MiraCosta College does not offer housing facilities. Therefore you need to look for where you are going to house before you come to the US. That is why it is important to start the your application early. So you have enough time to plane and do what you need to do. One of the most important thing to remember is that if you have any questions please contact us and we will be ahhpy to help.
Hope to see you soon at MiraCosta college, “the place to be”.
