Important: Be prepared to make your case when you have the opportunity to speak. Don’t just respond to the Consul’s questions with yes and no answer. Tell the Consul why studying in U.S. is so important to you and why you choose Elite Preparatory Academy. Remember getting a visa is not a matter of right, you have to act with sincerity and present your case in good faith.

Wire the Deposit after F-1 visa is granted. Wire the first year tuition and boarding fee of $35,000 to the school account within 2 weeks after your visa is granted or your I-20 may be terminated. You may not be able to clear the U.S. Custom and enter the U.S. if your I-20 is terminated.
