Once You Have Been Accepted
Congratulations on your acceptance to Luther!
Once you have made the decision to attend Luther, here are the next steps:
- Submit a $400 non-refundable enrollment deposit. The enrollment deposit secures your place in the entering class and confirms your acceptance of the financial aid awarded to you.
- Luther uses $350 of this enrollment deposit to pay for your SEVIS I-901 fee, required by the U.S. government prior to your visa interview. We will mail you a copy of the SEVIS I-901 fee receipt. You will take this with to your visa interview at the embassy or consulate in your country.
- We will also begin preparing your I-20, the form necessary for your visa application. We will mail the I-20 to you, along with a comprehensive Pre-Arrival Guide, via express mail.
Many of the steps you need to follow as an international student from initial acceptance to arrival on campus and enrollment in courses are different than the process for U.S. students. It’s best for you to follow the process outlined in the Pre-Arrival Guide.
