Amberton University - International Student Admission Requirements


Amberton University is authorized under federal and state laws to enroll qualified international students seeking bachelor's or master's degrees. Primarily, Amberton University is designed for the mature, working adult who is an English-speaking citizen of the United States of America. However, Amberton will allow international students (non-U.S. citizens/non-permanent residents) to enroll in academic programs if, after evaluation, it is determined that the University can provide for the special and unique needs often presented by these students.

The international student must submit his/her application for admission, transcripts, and any other supporting documents before admission can be considered. Any international student who requires Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) forms must supply all required documents at the time of requesting admission. (See Amberton's "International Student Required Documents List ".) Students needing ICE forms may speak with an admission advisor for further information and guidance. A processing fee is required of all non-U.S. citizens/non-permanent residents at the time of application for admission, regardless of ICE classification.

Amberton University does not issue original I-20 forms to individuals seeking student visas to enter the United States as F-1 students. The University will only renew the I-20 if the student is transferring directly to Amberton from an accredited college in the United States in which s/he has been enrolled within the last 6 months.
