Outside the US, Applying for an F-1 Visa

Century College requires students arrive at least two weeks before classes begin. The earliest a student in F-1 status may enter the United States is 30 days before the program start date on the form I-20.

You will find the “Program Start Date” on page 1 of your Form I-20 in the section called “Program of Study.” In this section, you will also find the “Earliest Admission Date.” That is the earliest possible date you can enter the U.S. in F-1 status. Do not attempt to enter the United States in F-1 status before that date.
