Visa and Immigration Information for Admitted/New International Students

Congratulations on your admission to American University! We look forward to welcoming you to our international community on campus. 

Until now you have probably communicated primarily with the Admissions office for your program. ISSS will now work with you to help you acquire the immigration documents you need to study in the U.S. and to prepare you for the transition to live and study at American University. To learn more about the necessary visa and other immigration documents, and arrival at AU, please see the Quick Links section to the right.
