International Student Information

Are you interested in becoming an international student?  If so, your role as a MACC international student may help support our mission in service to the Church by casting the net further, beyond our physical borders. For that, we extend you a sincere thank you and greet you with an enthusiastic welcome! Our goal is to facilitate the enrollment process and provide transparency for those of you studying abroad in the U.S., so that you can maintain your F-1 immigration status and take full advantage of its benefits. To that end, our online resources include:

• Enrollment Process
• Interview Tips
• Types of Documents
• Statement of Understanding and Addendum
• Transferring Your I-20 to MACC
• Education Expenses: Financial Responsibilities and Support
• Bringing Dependents
• Statement of Responsibility
• Maintaining Your Status
• Forms of Identification
• Traveling in the States
• Miscellaneous Tips and Resources
• Program Completion and the Transfer-Out Process

All these resources are conveniently located within our International Student Handbook, a PDF document.

If any of this information is unclear and/or if you have any questions not addressed within the existing resources, contact us – the principal Designated School Official (PDSO) or the Designated School Official (DSO) in the Office of Degree Based Programs. Our contact information is included, here, for your convenience. We look forward to hearing from you!
