Due May 15, the DTS application is available at www.dts.edu/admissions/apply/.
Keep in mind the following guidelines when applying for your degree program:
Once your application has been approved by the Admissions Department, applicants are then preliminarily accepted into the program. Then the International Student Services Department will contact you regarding how to provide proof of funding and assist with the immigration paperwork in order to complete the approval/acceptance process.
Due by June 1, proving funding can be a challenge at times. In order to assist you in this process, here are the acceptable forms of proof of funding:
In order for DTS to be able to issue certain immigration documents, per government regulations, all international students are required to show proof of an estimated 12 months of expenses (including tuition, fees, living expenses, etc.).
The amount a student is required to prove is based on the number of dependents coming to the US with the student. Please see website for the estimated amounts required to prove: www.dts.edu/departments/international-student-office/financial-requirements/
Once the total amount of funding has been proven, then the student will be fully accepted into the degree program!
Once the student has proven the required funding, the student will need to provide our office with the following documents:
Once the student has proven funding and submitted the required documents, the International Office will be able to create the required immigration documents and mail them to the student.
When these documents arrive, the student can schedule an appointment at the local US Embassy to apply for a Student Visa. Visa must be obtained by July 1.
After the visa has been approved, the student will be able to make the necessary arrangements for moving to DTS.
The incoming students will be in contact with the International Student Services throughout this process; however, if there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at email@example.com
