How to enroll if I am an International Student?
CIL is authorized under Federal law to enroll nonimmigrant alien students under a M-1 or F-1 visa.
International students must demonstrate competence in English Language.
Applicants must demonstrate sufficient financial resources necessary to cover the cost of attendance and living expenses in Houston, TX.
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.
CIL helps foreign students with lodging, installations, English classes if required, and foreign student scholarships.
