International Students

The International Student Program at Sussex County Community College gives students a great start to their education while allowing them to discover, explore, and experience the United States in all its glory.

The enrollment of international students at Sussex County Community College is approved by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service, U.S. Department of Justice.

Individuals holding an F-1 student visa are considered non-residents in regard to tuition payments. Length of stay, payment of taxes, or ownership of property alone do not qualify students for the status of legal resident. Individuals for whom an I-20 form has been submitted must enroll as full-time students during the fall and spring semesters and maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better at all times. Full-time status is achieved by registering for at least 12 credit hours each semester.

Since the Financial Support Statement certifies that the applicant already has sufficient funds to pursue a full-time education in the United States, no F-1 student will be allowed to work while attending the college. For more information please contact the
