Before you apply
First, check to be sure you meet NIU's international admission requirements.
Am I an international student?
You are considered an international student if you are:
- A new or current U.S. visa holder
- A pending permanent resident
- A student with refugee or asylum status
Pending permanent residents will be considered nonimmigrant students until they have an I551 stamp on their passport or who have received their Permanent Resident Card.
