Application Deadlines

NEW STUDENTS OUT OF THE U.S.:
If you are a new student who is currently out of the U.S. and will need to go through the F-1 visa application process, you should plan to apply at least three months before the start of the semester. The following deadlines apply:

Fall Semester: May 1st       Spring Semester: November 20th

It is important to remember that the issuance of an I-20 does not always guarantee that you will receive your F-1 visa. Please plan to apply early enough in case there is a delay with your documentation or difficulty in getting an appointment at the consulate.

According to F-1 regulations, international students who are entering the U.S. for the first time on an I-20 cannot enter the country more than 30 days prior to the start of the semester. For example, if the semester begins on August 15th, you will not be able to enter the U.S. before July 15th. For new students this may represent a problem in getting the classes that you want for the first semester as registration normally begins at least 2 months prior to the start of the semester. You will need to work with your counselor closely as soon as you arrive in the U.S.

TRANSFER STUDENTS:
If you are currently in the U.S. attending school at another institution as an international student in F-1 status, the following application deadlines apply:

Fall Semester: May 20th      Spring Semester: December 10th

Please be sure to inform your current school that you are transferring to Folsom Lake College. Also, make sure that you submit all of the required documents for the I-20 issuance, including transfer form, to the Admissions & Records office by the above dates.
