The $500.00 enrollment fee is non-refundable upon the issuance of the I-20 form. Student or the parent/guardian is responsible for mailing back the original I-20 before the tuition refund is made.

I-20 Form
Upon receipt of the tuition and fee payment, Judge Memorial Catholic High School will issue an I-20 form.

If, a student is unable to attend during the planned term, the I-20 must be returned with notification that the student will not be attending Judge Memorial.

VISA Application
International Students must appear before a United States consulate in order to secure an F-1 student Visa. The following items are required and must be presented: I-20 Form issued by Judge Memorial, a valid passport, and proof of sufficient financial support.  Students with F-1 status who are transferring from an educational institution in the United States should consult with the International Student advisor at their current school for instructions on the Immigration Services transfer process. This should be done as early as possible to avoid any difficulties.
 
J-1 Students
Students with a J-1 Visa are subject to the same policy, procedure, tuition and enrollment fee as an F-1.
