INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS SEVIS I-20
Midwest University requires that all international students (F-1 visa status) whose primary language is not English take 12 notational credits of ESL (English as a Second Language) before or concurrent with their academic program. Students will be tested for current levels of English proficiency to place students in the appropriate level of English as a Second Language study. Testing is based on scores on written, aural, and verbal instruments.
International students studying at Midwest University must adhere to immigration laws in order to maintain their F-1 visa status. Consistent and timely registration and completion of courses is vital. Along with academic requirements, students are required to adhere to all Midwest University policies.
Maintaining Your Status: It is important to maintain legal immigration status while in the United States. Therefore it is recommended to contact the International Student Officer for more information regarding the rules and regulations of maintaining F-1 (and F-2) status. All international students will be required to sign a statement regarding maintaining status.
