Yes, in your country but not in the U.S.

Many students choose online education specifically so they can continue current employment in their home country and save money on extra costs of travel and life in another country.

 

Not Advised. Hybrid courses require in-person meetings or instruction on campus from time to time. Therefore, a visa would be required to travel to the U.S.

Some students use a B1 Visitor visa to temporarily enter the U.S. for this purpose. However, B category visas are intended for business meetings or pleasure only.

To avoid problems with visa regulations at the U.S. port of entry, we advise selecting a degree program that is 100% online and would not require any travel to the U.S. as a student.

 

To ensure you meet admissions standards, all academic credit earned outside the U.S. for high school or university must be evaluated by a foreign credential evaluation service.

  • If original records are not in English, an official translation is also required.
  • Self-translations and self-evaluations of academic credentials will not be accepted.
  • For a list of approved foreign credential evaluation services, select a member of NACES or AICE. Allow several weeks for your transcripts to be processed and sent directly to UWG Online admissions. Many of the members also provide official translation services.

  • Duolingo English Test: 95 minimum, 100 recommended, or
