International applicants are defined as interested individuals who are non-U.S. citizens or permanent residents regardless of current place of residence.

There are two parts to the international student application. The first part is the same as that of U.S. application, which involves the applicant turning in completed application packet and participating in entrance exams. Applicants who have successfully completed the first part will then be invited to apply for entry into U.S., starting with the application of I-20 from CESNA, which will enable the applicant to apply for student visa (F-1 Visa) from U.S. Embassy or Consulate in his/her own country of residence. The entire application procedure can be divided into 4 steps with the following CESNA deadlines and timelines.

  • Application Deadline:3/1
  • New International Student Enrollment Date:9/15
  • First day of class:10/1
