OIP Future Students
Congratulations on your acceptance to UW-Superior! We look forward to welcoming you to the UW-Superior community. We will be glad to answer any questions you have about enrolling as an international student at UW-Superior.
For more information about finalizing your enrolling and to learn more about the countless opportunities at UW-Superior, please refer to the information included in your admission packet. Keep in mind that after you receive your official offer of admission, there are still important steps to take to prepare to enroll at UW-Superior. See the checklist and click on the links below for details.
The offer of admission is an invitation to join the UW-Superior campus community.To best prepare for the incoming class, we need to know whether students have accepted our invitation. In order to reserve a place and be eligible to register for classes, admitted students must submit a $100 enrollment deposit.The deposit will be applied to your first semester's tuition bill.
For the fall semester, freshman and transfer international students should pay their enrollment deposit by May 1, or within 30 days of receiving their letter of acceptance, whichever is later. For the spring semester, students should pay their enrollment deposit by November 1 or within 30 days of receiving their letter of acceptance, whichever is later.
International students attending UW-Superior through an exchange program or students who intend to study for only one or two semesters are not required to submit an enrollment deposit.
Admitted students receive information about paying the enrollment deposit in their admission packet. The deposit can be paid on-line at www.uwsuper.edu/enrollmentdeposit.
UW-Superior provides convenient and affordable housing and meal options. Upon admission, all students are automatically sent an email with information about the residence halls and the room/roommate assignment process. Undergraduate students are required to live on campus for the entire academic year if they are under the age of 20 on the first day of the fall semester of the academic year.
UW-Superior uses a 100% on-line process by which students submit housing contracts, find roommates and select rooms. Admitted students are sent a message with instructions about the process shortly after they are admitted. Keep in mind the following:
Please direct questions related to living on campus to the Res Life Office, email@example.com.
Since UW-Superior offers convenient and affordable on-campus housing, it does not provide services related to locating and arranging off-campus housing. Students who will be age 20 or older on the first day of the fall semester of the academic year and who intend to live off campus should arrive in Superior several weeks before the start of their intended arrival date to locate suitable housing, purchase furnishings, and familiarize themselves with local transportation.
To apply for an F-1 visa, students should contact or visit the website of the nearest US embassy or consulate for detailed instructions. Requirements processing the visa will vary by location.
Canadian students are not required to apply for a visa, but they are required to obtain a FormI-20 from the university and pay the SEVIS fee (www.fmjfee.com).
Students currently in F-1 status in the US are given guidance in their admission packet about how to transfer their SEVIS record to UW-Superior.
Beginning in mid-June, the international student advisor will contact all students who have paid their enrollment deposit with information about registering for courses. Normally, the advisor will contact a student within three weeks of submission of the enrollment deposit.
Information about the date(s) on which new international students are expected to arrive is included in their letter of acceptance.
Note the following:
Numerous activities are scheduled in the week before classes begin to help newly arrived students prepare for their first semester. Detailed information about these activities is sent to admitted students several weeks before the beginning of the semester. These are important and all new students are required to attend - not only will you learn vital information about academics, the campus, the community and immigration issues, there is also a great chance to get to know your fellow incoming classmates. Also understand that there is an automatic charge for orientation as indicated in your letter of admission.
