Special note about visitor Visa Waiver, B-1 or B-2 status: full-time study is not permitted in the B-1 (business) or B-2 (visitor) visa or in the visa waiver program. The B visa does permit visitors to the U.S. to take short-term classes that are not the primary purpose of the visitor's presence in the U.S. If your program will be full-time, you will need to obtain an F-1 student visa. Questions concerning visa status can be directed to visas@miis.edu.

Special note to groups: If you are participating in a group, your immigration documents will be sent to your group coordinator.
