Babson College provides student immigration documents for students who have been admitted into a full-time program.
To enter the United States for educational purposes, most full-time undergraduate and graduate international students obtain a Form I-20, receive an F-1 student entry visa, and enter the United States in F-1 student immigration status. J-1 Status may be an alternative to F-1 status for certain degree-seeking students who meet the qualifications for J-1 status. View the Comparing F-1 and J-1 Status page for additional details and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to pursue J-1 status.
Exchange students coming to Babson for a semester or academic year through partner institutions will receive separate instructions for obtaining a Form DS-2019 for their J-1 visa process.
Degree-seeking students should following the steps outlined below. The Glavin Office is not able to process your immigration document request more than four months prior to the start date of your academic program* and not until the first deposit was received and all conditions for admission have been met.
*exceptions are being made for incoming fall 2021 students, so students should start the Form I-20 process upon making their first deposit.
