Visa requirements In order to study in the U.S., you will need an F-1 Student Visa. Details on how to apply for this visa can be found on the Visa & Immigration Requirements page.
Financial obligation If you are applying for an F-1 Student Visa, you will need to provide a notarized statement of financial support or a certified government sponsor letter indicating that tuition will be paid in advance of each term and that a sponsor will provide all necessary living expenses. (Form I-134 may be used.) If your employer provides tuition assistance contact your supervisor or employee benefits office to determine if tuition reimbursement or direct billing is available.

Tuition Deposit for F-1 Applicants A refundable tuition deposit equivalent to the cost for six credit hours charged at the current standard tuition rate is required from initial F-1 applicants entering their first semester with Keller. The tuition deposit is due after applicant’s F-1 visa has been approved by the U.S. Consulate or Embassy abroad and prior to the applicant’s entry into the United States. The tuition deposit will be applied to tuition charged for the student’s first semester. This tuition deposit will be refunded if the applicant subsequently cancels enrollment.
