Do you want to go to college in the United States?

Nearly 1 million international students already do. If you want to join them, you should learn about the student visa.

To find out what steps to take to get that visa, join a webchat Tuesday, April 19, at 14:00 UTC. You’ll learn from visa experts at the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as they describe an eight-step student visa process.

The chat space will include other experts too — people who can respond to visa-related questions not addressed by on-camera experts, so you’re sure to get the information you need.

Applicants to U.S. schools are sometimes nervous about the visa process. Remember, the Bureau of Consular Affairs wants to issue visas to qualified students, and U.S. colleges want to welcome them. There is no cap or limit on how many student visas can be issued.

Explore information about visas and studying in the U.S., then bring your questions to the interactive webchat Tuesday, April 19.
