Complete the forms, including a permanent foreign address and a sponsor signature from the parent, sponsor or agency guaranteeing the student's financial resources. Students currently studying within the U.S. must supply documentation of their status from their current school, and have their SEVIS record released to Otis.

Communication must be in English or accompanied by certified English translation, and funds should be in U.S. dollars. Address these letters to Otis Admissions Office. When all required documents are received, an I-20 will be issued to the student, who may take this document to U.S. Embassy or Consulate to obtain an F-1 Student Visa.  Information about the I-20 document and the F-1 Student Visa will be mailed to admitted international students.
