- International Students
Applicants to Martin Methodist College who are citizens of a foreign country must complete the regular application form online.
General Procedures for International Applicants
- The prospective student applies to and is accepted by Martin Methodist College. The prospective student completes and returns the “Required Financial Information” form and the required financial documentation to the International Student Adviser along with a copy of his or her passport.
- The MMC International Student Adviser prepares an Initial Attendance SEVIS I-20, which is sent to the prospective student in his or her home country.
- Prospective international student pays the SEVIS I-901 fee and immediately prints a receipt. The most expedient method is to do this online. (see SEVIS fee information)
- Prospective international student makes an appointment for a visa interview with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate to apply for an F-1 Student Visa.
Once you have your F-1 Visa, purchase an airline ticket to arrive in Nashville, Tennessee, several days prior to the beginning of classes. Notify the International Student Adviser or your coach, if an athlete, of the details of your arrival. Travel with all of your documents: your passport with F-1 Visa affixed, your SEVIS I-20 and the I-94 card you will be given on the airplane. All of those documents are important and necessary.
F-1 students who are already studying in the United States must first apply to Martin Methodist College and be accepted. Provide the MMC International Student Adviser with copies of your passport, F-1 Visa, I-94 card, current SEVIS I-20 and your financial documents. The existing SEVIS I-20 record will be transferred from the former institution to Martin Methodist College. This is best accomplished through direct contact between the International Student Adviser at the former institution and the International Student Adviser at MMC.
Any questions regarding application procedures should be directed to Robin L. Hood, PDSO, International Student Adviser, at 931.363.9800 or firstname.lastname@example.org
