US Visa Requirements for International Students

Updated on February 23rd, 2023

Visa requirements vary by program. Check the requirements for your program below.

Aspire: Five-Week Music Performance Intensive

The US Department of Homeland Security requires that any student who is not a US citizen apply for an F-1 student visa. You may not attend Aspire: Five-Week with a B-1 visa, B-2 visa, or ESTA visa waiver.


All Other Summer Programs

If you are not participating in Aspire: Five-Week, you are recommended to enter the US with a B-2 tourist visa or, if eligible, through the Visa Waiver Program.

Note that we are legally unable to advise on the procedures for securing any visa other than the F student visa, so it is your responsibility to follow the steps outlined by the US government for obtaining the visa needed for your program.
