International Students

Are You Interested In Applying As An International Student?

This application is for an applicant who wishes to obtain an F1 visa or status and maintain it to study in the U.S. If you wish to study at NCC with an F1 visa or status, you can proceed.

Please note that you are not allowed to attend school with a B1/B2 visa. If you are currently in the U.S. with a visa other than an F1 visa and would like to change your current status to an F1 status, you must apply for the change of status on your own. If you meet our admissions requirements, we will issue the Change of Status I-20 only. We highly recommend seeking an immigration lawyer for assistance in filing your change of status application to USCIS.
