Important Information for Undergraduate International Students
If you are interested in applying as an international student to UT Tyler, we recommend first reading the "Six Steps for International Students" posted by the American Chemical Society. This is an excellent getting started guide no matter what your intended major. "If You Want to Study in the U.S." is another good resource. Information regarding the U.S. visa process can be found at the U.S. Department of State web site. Education USA provides tips on entrance exams, applying, financing, visas, and pre-departure information for international students.
The United States has launched a government-wide initiative to encourage the best and brightest international students and scholars to study and remain in the United States. A key component of this initiative is the launch of StudyInTheStates.dhs.gov, a new, dynamic website that serves as a clearinghouse of information aimed at helping international students navigate the international student process.
After being accepted, you will receive an I-20 form from UT Tyler with your admission information. The I-20 form should be taken to the U. S. Embassy or Consulate in your home country to obtain the necessary F-1 Student Visa. Remember to also take documentary evidence of financial support for your studies in the U.S., since the official may request such evidence.
Report to UT Tyler's International Student, Scholar and Faculty Services Center, University Center Room 2160, as soon as you arrive to campus. Bring your signed I-20, your passport, visa, I-94 and your new Tyler address.
