Additonal Steps for International Students

  • After all application forms and information have been received, the Admissions Committee will make the decision regarding acceptance. If accepted, Piedmont must receive on deposit the funds in US dollars to cover the cost of the first year’s education (fully refundable). This amount may be obtained from the Piedmont Financial Aid Office and will include: tuition,  room and board, fees and books. Once these funds are received, a final acceptance letter will be mailed to the student along with the I-20 form.
  • The I-20 and the acceptance letter will need to be submitted to a United States Consulate or Embassy to obtain the “F-1” student visa, (The I-20 immigration document DOES NOT guarantee the issuance of the “F-1”student visa.)
