Visa and I-20
CIHS is authorized under federal law to accept non-immigrant students. (The I-20 form is issued to all eligible applicants.) Prospective international students must verify sufficient financial resources and show English language proficiency.
CIHS is certified for enrolling international students using the Students and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).
A student whose native language is other than English must submit official documents showing a score of five hundred fifty (550) or higher on the paper-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or two hundred thirteen (213) or higher on the computer-based TOEFL.
If the student has graduated from a U.S. college or university, a school in another English-speaking country, or a college where the language of instruction is English, or the student has completed an intensive English language program and can prove he or she has the required proficiency in English (reading, writing, and speaking), the TOEFL score may be waived.
Official transcripts are required for issuance of the I-20. Transcripts from international higher education institutions must be evaluated by an approved transcripts evaluation agency. Applicants are responsible for the fees for the transcript evaluation.
