International students must submit translated school records and proof of immunizations and must schedule an interview with Karen Piasecki, Associate Principal. If the student is accepted to Union Catholic, he/she must register and make all required tuition and fee payments and the $250 SEVIS Application Fee. At registration, the I-20 is issued.
After obtaining the I-20, it is the student's responsibility to schedule and attend a consulate appointment with the Department of Homeland Security to obtain an F-1 student visa. International students must have a valid F-1 student visa at the time they begin attending Union Catholic and they must report for school no later than ten (10) days into the school year. Therefore, the application process must begin early enough to accommodate the consulate's timeline for approving and issuing the F-1 student visa. Before attending the consulate appointment, applicants must also pay the I-901 fee directly to the U.S. government. Bring the I-901 receipt to the appointment.
International students are required to enroll for a minimum of two years. Therefore, international students must begin at Union Catholic in grade 9, 10 or 11. If the student is currently in grade 11 and would like to transfer to Union Catholic, the student is required to repeat grade 11.
Union Catholic does not assist students with home stay placements. Students do not have to be proficient in the English language; English as a Second Language instruction is provided one period per week.
Tuition and fees for international students must be paid directly to Union Catholic. Payments must be made from a domestic United States checking account or by money order. For further information, see our Tuition and Fees page.
