To whomever may help me on this one,

Thank you. The online form DS-156, Question 38 says:

Have you ever been refused admission to the U.S., or been the subject of a deportation hearing or sought to obtain or assist others to obtain a visa, entry into the U.S., or any other U.S. immigration benefit by fraud or willful misrepresentation or other unlawful means? Have you attended a U.S. public elementary school on student (F) status or a public secondary school after November 30, 1996 without reimbursing the school?

My question:

My fiancee was refused a student visa in 2000; would i mark yes on this question? If I do mark yes, would i need supplemental proof? And how would this affect her application?

Thank you so much.. I know how USCIS is picky about these things

Is there room to explain which of the above you are answering the affirmative to? I mean, you should check yes, because she was refused admission. If there is no room to explain, I would attach a page explaining the circumstances.

Previous refused admissions don't necessarily affect K1 applications, but it depends on the circumstances (like, if she was caught trying to smuggle drugs, I'd be worried).

Refused admission means not allowed in at the border.

Denied a visa is what occured. The question asks about fraud, misrepresentation (lying), or unlawful means. From what you've stated she applied for a visa and was denied. Nothing illegal or fraudulent there.
