Apply as an International Student

  1. Apply for admission online. There is no application fee. Additional documentation is required for international students to receive an I-20 which is needed to request an F-1 visa.

  2. Review requirements and submit required admissions documents. Once you submit all admissions documents, please allow five business days for a response. Once we have reviewed your information we will email you. 

    • If you have not heard from us within five business days, please email us at
      • Use your FRCC student email within eWOLF.
      • Include your name and S number in all emails.

Next Steps

Upon receipt of all the above required documentation, FRCC will issue the United States Immigration Form I-20. You then will apply for an F-1 visa through the U.S. Consulate in your home country. Review F-1 visa requirements.

Immigration regulations allow you to travel to the U.S. no earlier than 30 days before the start of the semester. You are required to contact your Designated School Official (who issued your I-20) once you arrive in Colorado. Please contact us at
