Transfer: Students transferring from another U.S. institution must have their transfer verification form completed and returned by the DSO.

Financial Documentation: The Statement of Finance must be completed and returned with supporting financial documents. Financial documents are usually certified statements from a bank or other financial institution that prove you or your sponsor(s) can cover all educational expenses for the first year of enrollment. Notarized letters of support from financial sponsor(s) are required if your sponsor is not one of your parents. This is waived if the student has proof of government assistance. (example: financial guarantee)

Apply: Students are encouraged to apply prior to June 1 to begin in the fall (August) term. Prior to Nov. 1 to begin spring (January) term. Apply online for free. Upon receipt of all application items, your file will be reviewed. If approved, a formal letter of acceptance and acceptance packet will be mailed to your address on file and sent by email.

SEVIS / Student Visa: Accepted students are sent an acceptance packet to complete. Part of the acceptance packet has a $2,000 advance tuition payment that must be submitted first in order for Culver-Stockton to issue an I-20 form. Once the I-20 form has been submitted, students will need to pay the SEVIS I-901 fee.

Once the I-901 fee is paid, the student should make an interview appointment with the nearest US embassy or consulate to obtain a visa.
