Since the summer program does not test participants and does not offer academic credit, it is categorized as a training program for visa purposes (visitors who attend a scientific, educational, professional, or business convention or conference).
Available Visa Types
There are two ways you may enter the United States to attend the summer program.
Visa Waiver Program
In order to enter the United States under the Visa Waiver Program, visitors from participating countries must:
• be a citizen of a Visa Waiver Program country (you will find the participatingVisa Waiver Program countries here),
• have a valid passport issued by the participating country,
• be seeking entry for 90 days or fewer, as a temporary visitor for business or pleasure.
B-1/B-2 Visitor Visas
If you do not qualify for the Visa Waiver Program, you should request a B-1/B-2 Visitor Visa to attend the summer program. The B-1/B-2 visa is the appropriate visa for entry into the United States for participation in a scientific, educational, professional, or business convention or conference. When applying for a visa, you should include the admission letter, the invoice, and a payment confirmation. The admission letter and the invoice will be sent to you by e-mail.
The U.S. State Department requires visa applications to be admitted at least 60 days before the date of travel. In some cases, visa processing times may take longer. Therefore, international participants, who need a B-1/B-2 visa, are encouraged to submit their summer program application as soon as possible so that they may have sufficient time to apply for their visa if accepted.
