IMPORTANT INFORMATION

ADMISSION 

Prospective students who wish to study English at UNAM-San Antonio must complete an application and pay the application fee. Other required materials are the affidavit of financial support accompanied by a bank statement or other evidence of funds, and a copy of the photo page of the passport. Once these documents have been received, UNAM-San Antonio will send to the prospective student’s address an acceptance letter, the form I-20, and a list of the next steps to follow. If the prospective student successfully gains an F-1 visa, the student should contact UNAM-San Antonio to make arrangements for registration, course payment, placement testing, and arrival in San Antonio. Students are required to study full-time while on a student visa. Full-time is considered 18 hours per week minimum, i.e. intensive classes plus a Conversation course. Students who do not study at least 18 hours per week risk forfeiting their student visas. Other rules regarding admission and expulsion policies are located in the online Student Handbook.
