An International Student is defined as a citizen or national of a foreign country who is in possession of or wishes to apply for an F-1 visa to study in the United States. Non-U.S. citizens currently living in the U.S. with no valid documented immigration status are “Undocumented Students” and are considered International Students. Undocumented Students that graduated from a U.S. high school must meet the First-Time Freshmen admission requirements.
