F-1/J-1 International Students
We offer educational programs through the KU Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Health Professions. Students on an F-1 visa must meet full-time status and show proof of funding. J-1 Visa students have funding from an outside source or are on a short-term exchange program.
As an international student, you must apply to a program, and be accepted before any immigration document (I-20 or DS-2019) will be issued to you. For information on the application process, we suggest you visit the page associated with the KUMC program you are applying to.
Once accepted by a program, the department will request the appropriate immigration document for you. You will need to complete a questionnaire and provide supporting documents such as a copy of your passport identification pages and proof of funding.
If you have received notice of your acceptance and have not received an email from the Office of International Programs, then please contact an OIP Inbound Programs advisor.
