After application is processed and admission granted, a letter of acceptance will be sent to the applicant.

      In order to obtain an I-20 form, the applicant must send:

  • A completed, signed application
  • $150.00 by bank check, money order, or money transfer. ($50.00 non-refundable application fee plus $100.00 refundable tuition deposit)
  •  An official bank and scholarship letter showing at least $22,100 USD /year.
  • A copy of the passport information page 
  • Copies of Transcripts (classes & grades) from most recent education in home country & all English study in USA.

 After the I-20 is issued, and before the visa interview appointment, the applicant must pay a non-refundable $200 SEVIS fee to the US government at www.fmjfee.com.  This fee may be paid to IEI with the other fees, and then IEI will pay this fee for the student, and send the I-901 receipt with the acceptance documents.  


If the student chooses not to enter the USA nor attend the International English Institute on our I-20 for any reason, the tuition deposit may be refunded (minus any administrative expenses, including bank and courier charges) if the request for refund is received in writing within 4 months of the initial I-20 issue date.  The unused I-20 will be immediately cancelled.



IEI is required by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service to be assured that all applicants are able to pay all IEI tuition & fees, and living expenses as stated in the IEI brochure.
