Interview

A Zoom interview is required for ALL students in order to assess oral language ability and student character.

Confirm Your Place

If the applicant is accepted, the $4,300 enrollment deposit, required housing application/forms, and terms and conditions must be submitted according to the deadlines provided on our accepted student website. Once the enrollment and registration fee deposits have been received, the I-20 (student visa form) is issued.

Visa Confirmation

If the applicant successfully passes the visa interview, flight details and full payment will be due before the student’s arrival to the program. Fairmont housing details will be provided approximately 30 days before arrival, provided the visa has been obtained and the enrollment deposit has been received.

Visa Denial

If the applicant’s visa application is denied, please send the visa denial letter by post to Fairmont International Admissions for a refund. Contact Betty Petersen at (714) 234-2784 with questions.
