The United States has many competitive private and public institutions of higher education. According to

prominent international rankings, around 15 American colleges and universities are ranked among the top 20 in

the world. Higher education in the United States is an optional final stage of formal learning following

secondary education. Higher education, also referred to as post-secondary education, third stage, third level, or

tertiary education occurs most commonly at one of the 4,599 Title IV degree-granting institutions, either

colleges or universities in the country. These may be public universities, private universities, liberal arts

colleges, or community colleges. . As of 2011, the latest figures available in 2014, the US has a total of 4,599

Title IV-eligible, degree-granting institutions: 2,870 4-year institutions and 1,729 2-year institutions.

High visibility issues include greater use of the Internet, such as massive open online courses, competency-

based education, cutbacks in state spending, rapidly rising tuition and increasing student loans.

Strong research coupled with funding have helped make American colleges and universities among the world's

most prestigious, making them particularly attractive to international students, professors and researchers in the

pursuit of academic excellence.

EMPLOYMENT

Most international students in the United States hold an F-1 visa, which is the U.S. non-immigrant student visa.

F-1 students are allowed to work in the United States, but only under certain conditions and in accordance with

complex guidelines and restrictions issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).

Generally, all employment is contingent on remaining within the terms and restrictions of your F-1 visa. There

are several categories of employment during the term of your stay as an F-1 student in the United States. On-

campus employment is the most freely available, and then there are four categories of off-campus employment:

 On-Campus Employment (upto 20 hours/ week while school is in session)

 Optional Practical Training (OPT) (upto 12 months full time in total)

 Curricular Practical Training (CPT) (> or < 20 hours / week)

 Economic Hardship (In case of severe hardships)

Education System

Education Chart

In USA, Under graduation / Bachelor's level education in USA starts post  completion of 12 years of primary

and secondary education. Hence, education beyond class XII is also known as 'post-secondary' education, in

USA.

Bachelor's programs are of four years duration, and are offered by different types of colleges namely Liberal

Arts colleges (offering general education in arts and science), Upper-Division colleges( offering two years

specialized undergraduate programs) and Community colleges( offering  Associate Degrees of two years

duration). Specialized programs like Engineering are also offered, that are equivalent to the first two years of a

bachelor's degree. These are known as 'transfer' programs.

Universities offer an extensive range of both undergraduate and graduate degree programs, which is ideal for

research work.

Admission

Admissions are offered to international students without any bias. It is interesting to know that Early admissions

are also a possibility for the some students who are yet to complete their 3rd year bachelor's degree. Some

colleges/universities offer an Early Decision admission, for which the admitted students need to commit to

enroll at the college. Normally, such colleges take 'Early action' in notifying the students of 'Early Decision'

based on which the students have to accept the admission offer and make a deposit.

Required Tests

In addition to very good academic background from Class 10 th to 12 th , international applicants are expected to

have very good scores in TOEFL and SAT, for admission into decent US universities at the bachelor's level.

Some better universities require even scores from SAT Subject Tests, before they make an admission decision.

There are several other issues with respect to Bachelor's study in USA – like the location, size, majors offerings,

admission requirements, deadlines, costs, financial aid, housing, student life, academic programs, latest

technology on campus etc.

Cost of Education

Bachelor's level education in USA is costlier than Master's level as Students are expected to take more credits

per semester, which leads to an increase in costs.

While the Average cost of tuition and fees is approx. 10,000-20,000 $ per year, depending upon program,

institution and location, Living expenditure would add up to another 8,000-10,000 $ per year, according to the

student's lifestyle.

Financial Aid is very rare for Bachelor's level international students. While there are several options like Federal

Stafford Loans and others for domestic students, such facilities are not available for non-domestic applicants.

Since Bachelor's is a four-year program, the costs tend to be very high overall. This is one of the reasons why

most students prefer studying from the Master's level in USA or elsewhere. Of all the international students,

only 19% of them went for the Bachelor's level as against 79% for Master's level!

It is not easy to support oneself with part-time employment since the program is intensive and students hardly

find time to work beyond their study schedules. Also, Teaching and Research Assistantships are available for

Master's level and not for the Bachelor's. Thus, part-time employment options are limited and returns from the

same are rare.

Accreditation

Accreditation of colleges/universities is very important in choosing the right institution, since that ensures

uniformity in curriculum, proper designing of courses, meeting the infrastructure needs, proper faculty and

facilities etc.

Six Regional Accrediting associations provide accreditation in six regions of USA – Middle States, New

England, North Central, Northwest, Southern and Western.

Whereas, National Accrediting Associations such as ACICS, AABC, ATS, DETC etc., provide specialized

accrediting for various programs in technology, biblical studies, distance education etc.

Applying for a visa

After securing admission into the University one must start with the visa formalities.

Visa process for USA is relatively simpler, and yet, tough to obtain! For those who are fully prepared with the

required documentation and interview preparation, the process becomes easy. However, professional guidance

and careful planning of the whole process is very important for success!

winter intake too. However all subjects commence in Fall and only some in Winter and Summer intake.

or above for Postgraduate and 80 above for Undergraduate studies is a decent score. IELTS score of 6.0 or

income from occupational earnings. In the United States, the highest earning occupational groups are the white
