STEP 1: Research your options

The first step to studying in the United States is researching your options to find a college or university that best fits your needs. You shouldn't try to match yourself to the school, but rather find the school that matches you and your priorities and long-term goals.

Remember that no official ranking system exists for colleges and universities in the United States. The best college or university is the one that is best for you and meets your requirements—academic, financial, and personal.

You should begin your research at least 12 to 18 months prior to the academic year in which you hope to attend a U.S. college or university. Start by answering some basic questions and looking at the more specific 'define your priorities' pages under each level of study. Some of the basic questions that you need to ask yourself are:

-Why do you want to study in the United States?
-Where will you best fit in? 
-Which colleges or universities will meet your needs? 
-Will you need financial assistance?
-What are the application and financial aid deadlines?
-Where do you want to live in the United States?

STEP 2: FINANCE YOUR STUDIES

Invest in yourself! The cost of living and studying varies across the United States. With the right amount of planning and research, pursuing a U.S. higher education can be made affordable with high returns on your investment.

Start your financial planning as early as possible. Each year international students receive significant amounts of financial assistance for their studies. However, competition is high. Applications for financial aid go together with applications for admission.

When looking into studying in the United States, evaluating your finances should be one of the first things you do. As with any investment, you need to evaluate what's best for your educational and career goals and how much you are willing to spend. 

One must look for special opportunities and financial aid. U.S. institutions offer a wide array of programs with a wide array of tuition and fees. Find information about special opportunities and financial aid provisions that U.S. higher education institutions offer to international students, such as scholarships, in-state tuition benefits, waived application fees and deadlines, and similar provisions.

STEP 3: APPLY TO UNIVERSITIES:

Once you have arranged for sufficient finances to fund your complete abroad education, start applying to the universities you wish to study in with the proper and apt details. Complete your application. This step covers the general application requirements for U.S. colleges and universities.

Applying for U.S. study is a task that takes time and concentration as each application is different and involves collecting recommendations, writing essays, and routing the results of required standard examinations. Plan to give this step the time it deserves for a successful result

STEP 4: APPLY FOR YOUR STUDENT VISA

This is the most crucial step in your entire admission process without which your study abroad dream will remain a mere dream. Make sure to keep all the documents required for the visa process ready.

STEP 5: PREPARE FOR YOUR PRE-DEPARTURE

STEP 5: PREPARE FOR YOUR PRE-DEPARTURE

This step is followed after you acquire the visa. Preparing for your departure is the final step to Your ‘Five Steps to U.S. Study.’

Key components to this final step include making your travel arrangements, attending a pre-departure orientation at your local place or online, gathering pre-departure materials and documents for arrival, as well as reporting to your school and attending orientations.

Check your new institution's website for additional pre-departure information that will be more specialized and have information about health insurance, average local temperatures throughout the year, local transportation options, housing, and more.
