Admission Documents

All new F-1 and J-1 students must meet the minimum English requirements to become a student at NWACC.  Most students take the TOEFL, but there are other ways.  The above link will provide all acceptable English waivers to obtain an approved I-20.

Under the FERPA law, NWACC is not allowed to release your academic information to anyone without your approval.  To approve other individuals, please files this form with Student Records.

All new F-1 and J-1 students must sign the above "Compliance Form" before they can start taking classes at NWACC campus.  This is usually provided to you at on-campus orientation which is 7 days before the first semester.  If you miss this orientation then contact International Programs and sign the above form. (make sure you check all boxes)

If NWACC accepts you as a future student and you are issued an I-20 then you must request Express Mail using UEMS to your home.  You must have the original I-20 in your possession prior to your Embassy interview appointment.  Please read these instructions for assistance.

Many students do not know what an I-94 is until they receive one.  The I-94 is given to students as they enter the country.  It is very important to understand this document and hold onto it.

It is important to get involved on-campus because this can alleviate the culture shock that may happen to new students during their first semester.  The International Ambassador Program's goal is to spread intercultural knowledge across campus and the community.

In order to receive an approved I-20.  International F-1 and J-1 students must submit a Financial Statement Form with proof of funds from a bank statement.  Please submit this to the International Programs office for acceptance. (bank statement must be within the last 6 months)

It can be hard as a new student from another country.  We understand and are here to help.  NWACC has a "Buddy Program" which pairs new international students with domestic students with the purpose of creating new friends and learning the community.  If you are interested then please file this form with the International Programs Office.
