DS260 - Filling online diploma information

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I am confused about filling out the education section in the DS-260 section "Previous Work/Education/Training Information" when a person has done online diplomas or certificates. 


My wife has done her bachelors online and a course from a college that is UK based. The study was self paced and the papers were online. She never physically left the country for any of it. My question is, what do i put in as the address for the institution and the time attended?


Correct me if i am wrong, for the time attended it seems that the date of registration till the diploma/certificate was received makes sense.

I got my bachelor's at the Open University while living in the Netherlands. I just put the UK address of the OU in Milton Keynes, and start/finish dates like you suggested (Jan of first year to Dec six years later). TBH, though, I don't think they care too much about education for marriage-based visas.
