International students interested in long term study at USV must complete the full application process. USV currently accepts F1 visas only. Get started early to allow time to process required documents for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). International students may not enroll as part-time students.
Upon the receipt of an acceptance letter, the student is to forward to USV payment for the first semester tuition before the tuition deadline. All tuition for each subsequent semester attended must be paid in full during that semester's registration.
International students will be required to take placement examinations in Mathematics, English and Music Theory (Music Theory is for Digital Audio Technology students only).
International students must maintain good academic standing at all times.
