College/University Application Process for USA
Those looking to pursue higher studies from abroad, generally prefer going to the USA. However, students are not aware of the appropriate application process for applying to universities in the USA. The application process will be the same for most of the universities, however, there must be a separate element for the application process for each of the universities. It varies between different study programs and levels.
Before applying students should know when to start the application process for US Universities? When are the deadlines? What are the intakes for US universities? When a student can go for studying there? These are some of the important things which students should know before applying to US universities. There are two main intake seasons of US universities fall and spring. Unlike India, universities in the USA follow a bi-semester system where an academic year is divided into two semesters. Students should decide which intake season they want to choose – fall or spring? Those students who are planning to go to pursue undergraduate or graduate-level courses should know the timelines for September 2021 intake.
Students should check the documents required for applying to the colleges to the USA:
- TOEFL Score or IELTS Score
- SAT Score
- Statement of Purpose/Essay

- Educational documents (college and school certificates)
Apart from the above-mentioned documents, students also need to submit the Financial Documents for Study Abroad Applications.
Aspirants applying for US undergraduate programmes should submit their applications directly to the universities they are applying to. Students should be aware of the complete application process for universities abroad.
