Due to the recent pandemic there are many schools closing indefinitely. For some schools the plan is to have students study from home. If your school works with international students there may be additional challenges. We were recently notified that two student programs have decided to have all of their students return home and will be terminating their program.
If your school is planning to use Google in any capacity, the students who return to China may not have access to their lessons. We are offering a few solutions for these issues. If you have students that were with any programs that are now closing, we have homestay support programs that will provide student support until the end of the school year. If you have students that are leaving, we are offering to work with students individually to ensure that they receive daily lessons and will collect those assignments daily to ensure students can complete their required assignments.
We will also be having an online seminar on how to use technology that will work to communicate with staff and students during this time and in the future. Please contact us if you need any guidance on any issues regarding Global Education or technology to improve working remotely.
I CAN APPLY is launching a new program for Global Education. For years our staff have been using technology to streamline the international admission process with countries around the world. With recent changes in the industry we are teaching schools on how to adapt, expand, and improve on recruitment and care of international students.

To complete the I-901 form, you will need your I-20 form and your SEVIS I.D. Number. (This can be found on your I-20 form on the top right hand corner of the first page. It will be under the words “Student’s Copy” and above the barcode). In the middle of the screen on the www. fmjfee.com website, CLICK on the middle box, “PROCEED TO I-901 FORM AND PAYMENT.”
Print out a receipt before you log off the website.
Allow two weeks from the time of filing and payment.
When you go to the U.S. Consulate take four documents with you:
Your letter of acceptance from school
The I-20 federal form issued by school
Receipt or proof that you have filed the SEVIS I-901 fee.
The U.S. Consulate’s office you will receive a booking appointment number with a specific date and time to interview with U.S. officials and request your Student VISA approval.
At the appointment date and time set by the U.S. Consulate, the student should prepare themselves for the interview at least 30 minutes early.
If the Student VISA is denied, re-apply and request another interview. Often the U.S. Government wants to know the seriousness, positive intent, and determination of the student and parents and their interest to pursue their education.
Keep the Registrar of school informed of this second interview date and time, as well as, the outcome of your interview with the U.S. Consulate.
If you have been affected by the sudden closing of your homestay support program or an immediate need to transfer students to other schools, we have workable solutions to assist you. I CAN APPLY provides emergency medical insurance, interpreter services, transfers, homestay services, and host family support to enable students to continue their studies in the U.S. contact us for free information about our Emergency Continued Care Program.
We are also looking for schools that are willing to accept students that need to transfer on an emergency basis in addition to our regular international student admission process.
