Step 2. Skype Interview
Once the above packet is received along with the application fee, a member of our admissions office will contact you to schedule a SKYPE interview with the applicant. This interview, along with your submitted scores and transcripts, will help assess English proficiency.

Step 3. Acceptance
The Admissions Committee will evaluate each applicant’s file. Shortly thereafter, you will be notified in writing with regards to your child’s acceptance.

Once accepted, the International Processing and enrollment fee is due. MVCS will then generate the I-20 and the original will be mailed to the student’s home. Please note that MVCS must have a local name and address where the student will reside while attending school. MVCS does not provide home-stay arrangements.

Students must have a visa to study in the United States, unless they are permanent residents or citizens. The accepted visa is an F-1, but there are other visas under which it is permissible by law for a student to study. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure they have the legal right to study in the United States.
