After the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, US universities switched to distance learning or transferred international students to online education from home. Distance learning isn't for everyone, and many young people are looking to return to campus learning. Today, it is already possible to make a transfer to the United States and continue offline education at a number of American universities.

Transfer procedure

Applicants apply for the chosen course and receive an offer. Together with the academic advisor, they determine the number of credits that will be credited to the student if he has already studied at US universities / schools. No one will say in advance which subjects will be read to the student.

For applicants who studied at American schools / universities, the transfer procedure is simple. The student fills out the I-20 form, the information is transferred from one institution to another + you will need a certificate from the bank, which confirms the availability of the necessary funds to pay for tuition.
