Student Enrollment Procedures

Student Enrollment Procedures

We appreciate your assistance in applying on behalf of your students. The following are the instructions for completing the application process.

  1. Complete and submit an application form for enrollment at Mentora College.
  2. Pay the one-time-only Registration fee and the Tuition fees for the first three sessions.
  3. Provide Mentora College with a copy of the student’s passport with at least 6 months validity. The expiration date must extend at least 6 months past the date of return to the student’s home country.
  4. Provide evidence that the student has adequate funds to support his/her studies and stay in the United States.
    1. Evidence of funds can include letters from banks, bank statements or a letter from an employer mentioning position and salary. (No more than three months old.)
    2. If a student has a sponsor, the evidence must be from the sponsor, not the student:
      1. If the sponsor is in the United States, the sponsor must complete an Affidavit of Support (I-134 Form). This Form can be picked up at Mentora College or downloaded from the USCIS website (www.uscis.gov).
      2. If the sponsor is outside the United States, the sponsor must write a simple letter stating he/she will be financially responsible for the student.

    All documents must be translated into English and currencies converted to dollars. You can have the letters faxed to +1 (202) 677-7529 or emailed to info@mentoracollege.edu. You can pay any fees to Mentora College via email or over the phone by calling +1 (202) 644-7200.

  5. If the student is transferring from another U.S. institution, please enclose a copy of the student’s I-20, a copy of the passport information page, a copy of the front and back of the I-94 and a copy of the student’s visa.
  6. If the student is under 18 years old, he/she must provide a Parental Release Form for emergency medical care and trip participation.
  7. Once you have given Mentora College these four items (Copy of passport, application, registration and first three months tuition fees, evidence of funds), we will issue your student an I-20 and a Letter of Acceptance. You may either pick these up from Mentora College or we can send them to you for a delivery fee. Please see courier fees.
  8. You must then pay the SEVIS fee. This can be paid at www.ice.gov/sevis/i901/. Simply click on “File the SEVIS I-901 Form online.” Make sure to print out the receipt for your student’s records before closing the screen.
  9. Call your student’s US Consulate to find out what documents they will need to bring with them for their meeting.
  10. After your student’s visa is granted, please contact Mentora College to receive the pre-departure information and so we can send your student our online placement test to determine their English level.
  11. Students must contact Mentora College no later than three days after arrival in the US.
