for F1 Student Applications
LEI is authorized
under Federal law to enroll non-immigrant students. When applying to Language Exchange
International, you will need to note on the application in 2
sections that you are interested in obtaining the F1 Visa.
When turning in your completed
Application for Admission with all the
necessary information, we will also need the following
requirements to process the papers:
1. Proof of financial stability/sufficient funds while in the
USA (copy of latest bank statement will suffice).
2. Copy of valid passport (page with photo, name, date of
3. Payment for tuition and $100 registration fee.
4. If using a sponsor, a letter of support from the sponsor -
Affidavit of Financial Support - and the sponsor's current bank statement
Once all the above items have been received by the school, the
school is now authorized to issue the I-20 form for that
particular student. Once the student receives the I-20 form
and are applying at the American Consulate in their country,
they simply take the I-20 form, their passport and any other
supporting documentation with them to get the F1 student visa.
The prospective student will have to prove that they intend on
returning to their country after their time of study in the
USA. If they cannot prove that to the satisfaction of the
Consular officer, their visa request will be denied. In the
event a visa request is denied, the school will refund all
tuition fees paid minus the registration fee, once the I-20
form is returned to the school. A refusal letter from the
American Embassy is also acceptable. No refunds will be made
without receipt of one of those two forms.
Students are expected to maintain their student status once
the visa is issued or student status has been approved.
Maintaining your status simply means you must be studying at
all times. If you should stop studying for any reason, you
will be out of status and your visa will be finished. Students
are not authorized to work nor qualify for work until they
have completed one academic year. See the Director of
Admissions for special rules and regulations regarding
problems with being "out of status", visa changes, work
