Real Questions from Real Students

You asked: “I just want to know being an international student, can I pursue two courses at same time from different colleges?”

Matthew and Jamie answered: “International students who are in the US with an F-1 visa/status need to get a form called an I-20 from the school that they are attending. They must be a full-time student with this school in order to keep their F-1 status. As long as you are maintaining full-time studies at the school that issues your I-20, you can take additional courses at another school. You should apply for these additional classes at the other school as a non-degree or non-matriculated student.”

Do you have a question? Ask our June guest advisor, Amir Hadzic from Mount Mercy University.
