I'm interested in applying to the AIP as an international student/non-U.S. citizen. Am I eligible for admission?

For most international applicants wondering whether admission to the AIP would allow them to obtain a student visa and move to the U.S., unfortunately the answer is no.  Because our program is 1) part-time and 2) in most academic terms includes online coursework totaling more than 3 credits, acceptance to our program does not qualify an international student to obtain an I-20, which is in turn necessary to obtain an F-1 student visa.  Therefore, unless a student is able to obtain a visa to stay and study in the U.S. based on other criteria, admission to our program alone would not provide him/her with the necessary credentials needed to stay in the US and pursue academic studies.
