FAQ: International Admission

International Admission

After you receive your I-20 (F-1) or DS-2019 (J-1) from The University of Tulsa, first pay your I-901 SEVIS fee (this is separate from visa fees), then follow the U.S. Embassy/Consulate’s instructions to schedule an interview for your visa. It is important to apply for your visa as far in advance as possible
