Apply for a Student Visa and Confirm your Attendance at UNH
Students outside the U.S.A .: When you receive your I-20 from UNH in the mail, contact the nearest U.S. Embassy in your home country to make an appointment for an F-1 Visa interview right away. Do NOT make an appointment until you receive your I-20. We are NOT responsible if you miss your visa interview date because you made an appointment before receiving your I-20 Form.
F-1 International students inside the U.S.A. who wish to transfer to UNH should follow the transfer instructions sent to them along with their acceptance letter.
- Read the “Preparing for your Visa Interview” article. It will help you to better prepare for your U.S. Student Visa Interview at the U.S. Embassy in your home country or country of residence.
Visa Tip: Be prepared to answer the following questions in English during your visa interview:
- Why did you choose to study at UNH?
- Why did you choose to study this major at UNH?
- How do your future plans, after graduation, include returning to your country?
If your visa gets denied, don’t give up, try again. Many of our international students manage to obtain their student visas after the second or third interview.
