As you prepare for Marian University classes, please read this pre-arrival information. Every student is unique, so you may need to adjust the order of the steps or take additional information into consideration.
Our Pre-Arrival Guide 2019-20 contains suggestions and details to help you prepare for your arrival.
Review your I-20 or DS-2019 for accuracy as soon as you receive it. Confirm that your biographical information, program of study, and financial information are correct. Contact us immediately if there are errors.
After you have the SEVIS fee receipt, you can apply for an F-1 or J-1 visa at your nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Please note that Canadian citizens do not need a visa; instead they apply for F-1 status when crossing the U.S. border. Please see the visa application webpage for more information.
