Students without an F-1 visa who wish to study in the U.S.
For 2022 Winter and Spring quarters, UCLA Extension International Programs will be offered in a hybrid (online and in-person) format. Students without an F-1 visa, who wish to study in the U.S. and enroll in one of our hybrid format programs, will meet U.S. Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) eligibility requirements for an I-20 form to obtain an F-1 visa.
How does it work?
Hybrid programs will include at least one in-person class meeting over the course of the quarter. The number of in-person meetings may increase as public health orders permit. Even though you will be living in Los Angeles, most of the courses within your chosen certificate program will be offered in an online format. Learn about our online instruction methods.
How to enroll:
Follow the application process as outlined. All new international F-1 students who arrive in the U.S. for Winter and Spring quarters 2022 will be automatically enrolled in at least one in-person class meeting for the quarter.
