If you are an international student studying on F-1 visa, QVCC currently does not allow you to enroll in courses without permission from your sponsoring college or university.
Requirements for International Students
• Provide a letter from your university official
• An I-20
These are requirements of the Department of Homeland Security. All international students must have their classes reported through the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). QVCC is not a SEVIS school so it is required that your sponsoring school complete this task.
International students are not eligible for in-state tuition.
The Parent Guide is a resource designed to help parents navigate through the college admissions process. Inside the guide you will find information on financial aid, tips for success, information on activities beyond the classroom, and more.
