Applicants must demonstrate sufficient financial resources necessary to cover the cost of attendance.
The diploma course requires international students to have an M-1 visa. While attending school, M-1 students cannot work or be paid for employment. Students may take advantage of unpaid internships to gain experience.
International students enrolling in the associate degree course are required to have an F-1 student visa.
Students attending on an F-1 visa may be eligible for paid employment on campus after one year; subject to certain restrictions. After attending for 30 weeks, F-1 students may engage in three types of off campus employment.
