Visiting International Student


International students interested in taking courses at NWACC for one or more semesters will need to perform the following steps:

To protect the privacy of your information and to comply with U.S. Department of Education regulations, we can no longer accept documents by email.

The International Programs Center will not issue an acceptance letter for visiting international students, but once the required items are provided, then visiting students may sign up for orientation with Enrollment Support Services.  

Any visiting international students who do not upload the required documents will receive a “VH Hold” that will block enrollment until this step is completed.

If you are an F-1 Visa holder, be sure to inform your current I-20 institution that you are taking classes at NWACC. As an F-1 international student, you must take at least 6 credit hours at your I-20 institution and a total of 12 per semester with 9 of those hours being live on-campus.

  • If your I-20 institution wishes to contact us for verification of enrollment, please have them email InternationalPrograms@nwacc.edu or call 479-986-4069.
