To Receive an I-20 and obtain an F1 visa:

Tallulah Falls School is authorized under U.S. Federal Law to enroll nonimmigrant students. Once an international student has been notified they have been accepted to Tallulah Falls School, the following must be completed before the school can issue nonimmigrant documents:

  • Non-refundable tuition deposit paid
  • Signed enrollment contract
  • Medical paperwork- paperwork required by Tallulah Falls School 
  • Bank document verifying funds available for tuition and fees
  • A copy of the student's passport

Because these requirements may take more than a few days to complete, students are encouraged to begin the process immediately after being notified of acceptance.
