Interview

  • The Amerigo team will review the application and request any additional information needed.
  • We will schedule a Skype interview to meet the applicant and learn more about his/her interest in the Amerigo program.
  • Amerigo will review the application and the interview and confirm that the applicant meets all program criteria.

Confirm Your Place

  • Accepted students will receive an enrollment packet with supplemental documents to be completed by the student.
  • To reserve the student’s place in the Amerigo program, the tuition deposit of $5,000 USD must be received by the deadline indicated.
  • Upon processing of the enrollment documents and the tuition deposit, students will be issued their Form I-20 - see instructions below for obtaining the student visa.

Getting Your Visa

  • Once the visa application has been approved, the remaining balance of tuition and fees will be due at a date indicated by Amerigo prior to student’s arrival.
  • If the visa application is not approved, the student will receive a refund of the deposit (less $500 for administrative fees) upon sending the original I-20 form and a copy of the denial letter to the issuing institution.

  • To study in the United States, the student will need to apply for an F-1 visa with the local U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
  • Students will then complete an interview to demonstrate their ties to their home country, ability to pay for their education, and seriousness as a student.
