Shorelight Experience

Student Visa & Pre-Arrival

Shorelight education counselors take the guesswork out of applying for your student visa.

Shorelight advisors work with you step by step through the visa process. They also help you complete other required university forms, get you signed up on the finance portal, and even help create a to-do list for your move to America. 

F-1 student visa application From getting your I-20 and paying your SEVIS fee to submitting your DS-160 and scheduling your interview, we help you step-by-step through the visa process

Visa interview preparation Our enrollment advisors will help prepare you for your visa interview with mock interview sessions and a run-through of commonly asked questions. We let you know the dos and don’ts so you are fully prepared and receive your approval quickly and smoothly. 

Help with required forms Each university has information they need from each student. Our staff takes the guesswork out of the paperwork, giving you clear directions on how to submit forms and finance details. 

Housing and dining choices “Where I will live on campus?” and “What are my meal plan options?” are at the top of students’ lists of questions. We provide detailed information on your housing and dining options, and their associated costs. 

Finance portal access You will be able to easily submit your deposit and pay your tuition using our secure finance portal. You will be organized and up to date, with reminder emails to keep your payments on track. 

Pre-arrival videos, webinars & checklists What is the immigration process like? How is campus life? What should I pack? What should I not pack? These are all questions our international students ask – and our enrollment team gives you the answers.
