To study English in the United States, you will need an F1 I-20 Student visa.

To get this visa, you must be enrolled as a "full time" student, taking a minimum of 21 hours of class time per week in an accredited school. All students must show proof of financial support for the entire length of their study in the United States. Students must initially attend the school that is stated on the visa, but may later transfer to other schools, as long as the transfer process is followed.

A student is authorized to remain in the United States as long as they are enrolled as a full-time student. If a student is unable to complete a program of study within the anticipated amount of time, an extension of stay must be filed with the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

As an F-1 student, you are not permitted to work or engage in any type of business without approval from the Immigration and Naturalization Service. If a student moves, they must notify the Immigration and Naturalization Service within 10 days of the change of address.

NY Smarts does not currently sponsor students for this visa, but we hope to do so in the future.
