Obtaining an I-20

Most international students at The Boston Conservatory enter the United States with an F1 student visa. Before applying for an F1 visa at a US Embassy or Consulate, students must obtain a form I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility) from The Boston Conservatory. 

When new international students are accepted to The Conservatory, they receive an acceptance letter via email that includes a link to information, instructions and forms that explain in detail the requirements for receiving an I-20. 

Those requirements include:

  1. Payment of the tuition deposit
  2. Completed “International Student Information Form” with attached photo copies of the passport information page(s) and any previous US visas
  3. Financial Documentation demonstrating that students have access to adequate funds to meet the full estimated cost of one year as a student at The Boston Conservatory, including tuition and fees, room and board, and incidental expenses.
