A visa issued by the United States government is required to travel to the US to study. Failure to obtain a visa in time to travel to the US for the Summer Bridge will result in the student being unable to attend this part of the program. All students must arrive at the Summer Bridge program starting late May. NO late arrivals will be permitted.
How does the visa process work?
At the end of the USPP Spring term in April, students who achieve the grades to progress to Summer Bridge will receive their I-20 from Northeastern University. This is a document issued by US education institutions that students need when applying for a US study visa. Student Service representatives will help students complete their online visa application. After successfully completing their interview, students receive their US study visa shortly afterwards. Since USPP began in 2009, 100% of USPP students who have been accepted by US universities have been granted a US visa.
