it all depends on the college, and the course you want to attend.

Also, do you mean a student visa, or are you getting to the US some other way?

You are going to need your high school "official" transcript. It would be best if you have this "official" transcript forwarded from your high school to the college/university you are applying to. You will also need to take a test similar to the SAT test in the USA. However, this test might be different for potential nursing students. Also, depending on your immigrant type visa you may be required to have lived in the USA for a specific time period in order to get the best prices on tuition and other fees.

Best of luck!

Agree with Penguin. :thumbs: Check at the college(s) you are interested in for specific requirements/fees/tuition/etc.

In our immigration journey, my stepson initially wanted to go to a large state-run university. After review and family discussions about the fees/requirements/schedules/tuition, he opted for a smaller community college. It resulted in a smoother introduction to US college life for him, and more reasonable tuition and fees. He was able to take many of his prerequisite classes in a smaller, less-expensive, closer to home environment. Two years later, he is now has a great GPA, and is a junior transfer student at the engineering college of that large state-run university; clearly focused on his very technical, major course of study. It is clearly a win-win for all involved. Take your time and check out all of your options.


Good luck on your immigration journey.
