*If you need an  F-1 student visa to enter the U.S., you will have to pay the SEVIS Fee

AFTER you are issued a Form I-20 and BEFORE you apply for your visa. To make this process easy for you, the ELI will submit your SEVIS fee on the Internet, print the receipt for you, and mail it to you with your I-20 travel document. If you prefer, you can process the SEVIS Fee payment yourself. 

**F-2 visa holders are NOT eligible to study full-time at the English Language Institute. However, you may study as a part-time student. To study full time, you must apply for an F-1 visa.

***B-1 and B-2 visa holders are NOT eligible to study full-time at the English Language Institute. However, if language study is incidental to your primary purpose for traveling to the U.S., you can study as a part-time student. To study full-time, you must apply for an F-1 visa.
