Admission: In order to be admitted to the University, you need to fill out the application form, meet deadlines, and fill out all the requirements such as your diploma, CV, transcripts, letters of recommendation, financial support documents, among others in order to obtain the I-20. You will also need a high score in your TOEFL or IELTS but take into account that required scores vary from one university to another.

If a DS-2019 is given to you, you will be given a J-1 visa.
Financial Support: The Universities will require for you to show that you have the financial capability of supporting yourself during the period you will be studying.
Housing: Many universities offer the opportunity for students to live on campus. This a great opportunity to get to know other students living on campus, the campus itself and its environment. This option can either be more expensive or an option you are not willing to consider.

You can choose to live with a host family, in the student residences or even a family member. Wherever you decide to live make sure there is transportation and you have easy access to the school, supermarkets, etc., but most of all, make sure it is within your budget.
