*The Master of Science in Regulatory Affairs and Master of Science in Global Studies are the only programs that meet F1 visa requirements for full-time study during the summer term. International students who wish to study full-time on an F1 visa are not eligible to begin classes in other graduate or undergraduate programs during the summer term.

All I-20 related documents must be submitted electronically through myOGS, which is only accessible after admitted students have activated their myNEU account. More information on the visa process can be found here.
