Applying for an I-20 Form
International Students planning degree study in the United States are required to obtain the Student (F-1) Visa unless they have another valid non-immigrant visa status that allows them to remain in the U.S. If you plan to obtain the Student Visa F-1 status for study at Montclair State University, you must apply and be accepted to the University and obtain the I-20 Certificate of Financial Eligibility form from the Office of International Services. The I-20 form is required in order to obtain valid F-1 Student visa status. Instructions for applying for the I-20 Form are also listed under each category to the left.
Montclair State University offers a quality education for an affordable tuition. Students on most non-immigrant visa types including F-1 and J-1 visas must pay out-of-state non-resident tuition. To offset the costs we have tuition assistance available for F-1 and J-1 visa holders through Partial Tuition Waivers, Graduate Assistantships, Scholarships.
