Application Timeline

Students may apply to the international student program at Mendocino College for the fall and spring semesters.

Currently, SEVP will not allow schools to bring new F-1 students to the U.S. to study fully online.  Additionally, the U.S. Department of State (DOS) has temporarily suspended routine visa services at all U.S. Embassies and Consulates, which means an F-1 Student Visa cannot be obtained while MC is fully online.  Per current SEVP guidance, MC may only allow SEVIS transfer students who are currently in the U.S. studying at other SEVP certified schools to begin a full-time program of study completely online at MC for the 2020-21 academic year.  Applications for the 2021-22 academic year may be submitted.  Please check this page regularly for updates.

The application deadlines for the 2020-21 academic year are as follows:
