Visa Requirements

The Wake Forest University Center for Global Programs and Studies provides assistance with the visa process. You should read and make yourself familiar with the information found here: This page offers information on the requirements of studying on the F-1 or J-1 visa, including the guidelines for arriving and living in the US, F-2 dependent visas, and most importantly, the mandates of the visa regarding health insurance, English proficiency, and proof of funding for the duration of your studies.


We would encourage you to visit WFU Center for Global Programs & Studies where you can find useful information about arriving in the U.S. and getting settled in Winston Salem.
