International Prospective Students Guide
Due to the time needed to complete the entire process, international prospective students are recommended to apply at least 18 months before the expected date enrollment.
We at RTS Jackson are glad you are considering becoming a student here. Because the process of becoming an international student in the US is long and sometimes challenging, we organized this guide to help you through. As you seek God’s direction in the decisions ahead, our Admissions Counselor for International prospective students is available to help you along the way.
This is a Four-Stage Process. The stage process is progressive, which means that you can only advance to the next stage if you completed all the requirements of the preceding stages. This does not mean that you cannot start to prepare the next stage (you can and should), but the beginning of one is dependent on the competition of the previous.
For official information about legal requirements visit: http://educationusa.state.gov (choose “For international students” and then “Graduate”).
