Important Documents

Please make sure to download and read through the following documents as they include essential information for applying to CCC. The International Application Packet includes an eight-Step Checklist for applying, F-1 requirements, and other useful information. 


Canadian citizens DO NOT need visas to study in the U.S. However, an I-20 (or DS-2019) Certificate of Eligibility issued by the college is required. At the time you receive the I-20 (or DS-2019), you will be registered with SEVIS, the student tracking system. You will be assigned a SEVIS number, and be required to pay a registration fee (see below).

When you cross the border to study you will need to present the following at the port of entry:

  • Proof of identity and citizenship (such as a Canadian passport).
  • The original I-20 (or DS-2019) signed by the college official and the student.
  • Proof that you have paid your SEVIS fee.
  • Proof that you have the funds to pay for college.
  • Proof of your ties to Canada.
In addition to standard tuition and fees and room and board, international students should plan on the following expenses:
