Are You an International Student?
For the purpose of admission to Barry University, you are an international student if you have received university-level education outside of the United States and/or you require a student visa. For immigration purposes, you are an international student if your country of birth, citizenship, and permanent residency is not the United States.
U.S. Immigration Law requires that you obtain a nonimmigrant visa from the United States Embassy or Consular Office in your country in order to come to the United States to study. You should obtain information on visas from a U.S. Consular Office. Most international students are admitted on an F-1 Student Visa. The F-1 visa requires that you:
- Pursue a course of study as a full-time, degree-seeking student at the school that you are authorized to attend.
- Have a passport that is valid at all times.
- Have permission from INS to work off campus or to transfer schools.
