Admission Application Check List

Prospective F-1 students should be aware that filling out an application for admission does not guarantee your admission to the college. CVCC reserves the right to reject applications that are incomplete or provide information that is inconsistent or cannot be verified.

Step #1:     At this link: fill out the application for admission to the college online.

NOTE: Transfer students from a US college/university must also submit the following official forms: copy of current I-20; copy of current I-94; copy of current visa.
Step #2:     Go to the forms link and print out the forms to be submitted to CVCC Admissions.
Step #3:     Submit official copies with an English translation of all secondary school and university academic records by the appropriate deadlines.

NOTE: Transfer students from a US college/ university must submit an official transcript from all US schools attended instead of secondary school information.
Step #4:     Applicants must submit proof of financial responsibility for the duration of the students F-1 status at CVCC in order for an I-20 to be issued. The listed forms and instructions will be provided to students who have applied for admission to the college.

  • Financial Certification Form
  • Affidavit of Sponsorship
  • Affidavit of Sponsor Providing Free Room and Board

(Estimated costs for 9 months or two academic semesters are approximately $15,000)
