We welcome our international students (defined as anyone who is ineligible to apply for a U.S. passport) and value the richness of diversity in culture and orientation they bring to our programs.
International students need to meet domestic eligibility plus a high level of English language proficiency in to integrate successfully into the SIG academic program. A Skype interview may be required. Please visit SIG eligibility requirements for more information.
All international applications must be received by May 15, 2021, as there is limited enrollment accepted per country per campus.
We recommend that students check with their embassy regarding local visa requirements. All payments are due in U.S. dollars and must be received by May 15, 2021.
SIG provides visa invitation letters for international students which is typically used for a B1/B2 visa. Please note that SIG is unable to provide additional advice on acquiring a visa. Please contact your local consulate or embassy for specific visa requirements.
At the beginning of the program, the Residential Life Dean will ensure that the students’ passports and valuables are collected during registration, safely stored, and returned at the end of the session. Students not permitted to surrender their passports will be given alternative safety precautions for their documents.
