Admission - Next stepsAfter the Office of Admission has admitted you to the College of Coastal Georgia, the Office of International Education will assist you in completing the next steps.
Step 1: Submit Confirmation of EnrollmentUpon receiving your letter of admission, please complete and submit the International Student Confirmation of Enrollment Form.
STEP 2: SUBMIT Affidavit of SupportTo complete your acceptance and begin the process of obtaining your I-20, documentation is required to confirm that you have funding to cover your tuition, room, board, and fee expenses at the College of Coastal Georgia.
- Submit the International Student Financial Guarantee Form
- Amount to be certified
- Submit official bank statements/documents
- Submit the I-20 Issuance Form
The amount that you must certify for the first year will depend on your tuition classification status and whether you will live on-campus or off-campus (estimated cost of attendance, which includes tuition, fees, books, room & board, and other expenses budget) minus the amount of any tuition waiver and/or financial assistance from the College of Coastal Georgia. For example, an international student who plans to live off-campus, awarded Athletic Financial Aid ($6,250) and an academic presidential waiver, which changes the student’s tuition classification to “Resident,” would need to certify $7,682 for the first year.
Step 3: Apply for a Student Visa Because the visa application process can take a longer than expected, you need to begin your visa application as soon as you receive your I-20 Certificate of Eligibility (for F-1 visa). Please contact the Office of International Education, if you have any questions.
Step 4: Complete Immunization FormThe State of Georgia requires that all public institutions look for immunization records. Download the Immunization Form.
Step 5: Apply for HousingFreshmen international students are required to live in one of the College of Coastal Georgia's residence halls for the first year. Transfer international students can choose to live in a residence hall or a private apartment. Submit your housing application to reside on campus. Please direct your housing questions to Residence Life and Housing at email@example.com.
Step 6: Register for International Student OrientationAll newly-admitted freshman and transfer international students must attend the International Student Orientation. To register and learn more, please email the Office of International Education.
STEP 7: Complete RegistrationImmediately after the international student orientation, you will complete your course registration through the Office of International Education.
SEVIS TransferIf you are admitted as an international transfer student, you will need to complete a Transfer-In Form and provide it along with your letter of admission to your current institution. Once completed, please submit your Transfer-In Form to the Office of International Education to help us determine if you are eligible for a SEVIS transfer.
After your SEVIS transfer release date, the College of Coastal Georgia will be able to access your SEVIS record and create an I-20 for you.
You are required to report to the College's Office of International Education within 15 days of the reporting date on your I-20, or you may risk losing your immigration status.
