What is an M-1 Visa for Students?
If you’re interested in coming to the United States to pursue nonacademic or vocational studies, the M-1 visa may be the right choice for you. But what is an M-1 visa, how do you apply, and what can you do when you’re in the U.S. under this authorization? This guide explains.
An M-1 visa is available to students who are pursuing an education in a nonacademic or vocational program. That means you’re attending a vocational or other recognized nonacademic institution, other than a language program. If you’re attending a university or college, high school, seminary, conservatory or another academic institution – including a language program – an F visa is the better choice for you.
