Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) is authorized by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to issue I-20s (Certificates of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status).
International Students will be considered for admission to LAVC if all of the following requirements are met:
To prevent delays in processing your application, download the Application Checklist to ensure your application is complete
Once you are admitted to the college, we will send you a Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status, more commonly known as an I-20.
Take your I-20 and make an appointment to visit the U.S. Embassy or Consulate to apply for your visa. Visa application procedures vary by country so you may want to visit www.UnitedStatesVisas.us
This website will help you determine current visa policies and procedures where you live. We highly recommend that you check with the Overseas Educational Advising Center in your area. They will be able to help you with the visa application process and interview. They can also assist you with pre-departure information that will make your trip to the U.S. run smoothly. For more information on Overseas Educational Advising Center locations and services, visit http://educationusa.state.gov.
You are required to check-in with the college on the date and time indicated on your Admissions Letter. Please bring your I-20, I-94 your passport and visa.
International students are required to assess prior to attending orientation. Assessment will help you determine your math and English levels and help you enroll in appropriate level courses. Orientation will ease your transition to LAVC and familiarize you with our policies and procedures. During orientation you will review you assessment scores, plan your classes for the upcoming semester and make sure you know what is required of you to maintain your F-1 student status at Los Angeles Valley College.
After your orientation you are required to meet with a counselor once a semester to ensure you are enrolled in the appropriate courses, that you are “in-status” and making satisfactory academic progress.
