For International Students

Welcoming International Students

International students are welcome and can complete the IKNS degree as a full time student on an F-1 Visa. Students are responsible for ensuring you have read and understood the University’s student visa application eligibility and requirements. You can customize your course selection to meet the in person course requirements for F-1 students. Internship courses for CPT (Curricular Practical Training) are available as an IKNS elective to engage in company internships during your course of study. The IKNS Master of Science degree is STEM-accredited, enabling you to automatically gain practical work experience in the US for up to 3 years following your degree (OPT).
