Pre-Departure Information

Overview:

Once you make the decision to study in the United States, there is much to prepare for.  You will find many resources on the Internet but use caution when reviewing websites! Many websites are designed to sell you products or services.  Only visit sites that are administrated by the U.S. Government.  Several excellent websites include:
