I-20 Process

The first step in obtaining your I-20 facilitated by Killian Oaks Academy is to apply for admission to our program through our online application portal: Application Process.

After Killian Oaks Academy has received and reviewed your application, the school will contact the family to schedule a virtual meeting, or an in-person visit to our campus if the family is in town. If the student is accepted into our program, the family is invited to complete our Enrollment Packet through our online enrollment portal. After the school has received and reviewed your enrollment packet, along with the full payment for international student fees and tuition, the SEVP designated school official at Killian Oaks Academy will complete and furnish the I-20 to the parents of the student, as well as provide an acceptance letter.

Once the family receives the I-20 from Killian Oaks Academy, the next step is to pay the I-901 SEVIS Fee online through the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement website. Regulation requires that all international students pay this fee before the U.S. Department of State issues the student an F-1 visa. International students may enter the United States up to 30 days before classes commence at Killian Oaks Academy.

In addition to the documents required to be submitted during the Application Process, the following must be submitted for international students:

  • Legal Guardianship/Custody documents
  • Power of Attorney
  • Health Insurance card and information
