Step 1: Obtain a financial guarantee letter (F-1 Students only)
This letter must show proof of at least $7,100 USD or the equivalent in your country's currency to pay for tuition and fees upon arrival to the United States. This letter is required by the U.S. government to issue your visa documents.
If you are not an F-1 student, please begin at step #2.
Arizona law requires that all individuals under 18 years of age be given consent by a parent or legal guardian before they can receive any medical, surgical or psychiatric treatments. Arizona State University requires that a parental consent form be filled out and signed before enrolling anyone under 18 years of age.
ASU Global Launch will also issue I-20 documents for your dependents when applicable. If you require an I-20 for a dependent, your financial guarantee must provide proof of an additional $1,750 for a spouse or $1,250 for a child.
Transfer students are F-1 students who are already studying in the United States and would like to change schools. If you who wish to transfer to the Global Launch English program, please apply to the program, and then contact your student advisor at your current school.
Tell your student advisor that you want to transfer to the Global Launch English program. You should tell your advisor BEFORE you finish your current program.
Submit your online application, application fee, passport copy and statement of financial guarantee.
Send a copy, or have your advisor send a copy, of the completed F-1 Status Verification form to Global Launch.
Defer Your Application
If you have been admitted to the Global Launch intensive English program, but cannot attend the session you applied for, you must "defer" your application.
When you defer your application, you tell us that you would like to change your attendance to a later session. If you defer your application, your admission into the Global Launch program will be valid and you will not be required to pay the application fee again.
Your SEVIS I-20 document is only valid for 30 days after your SEVIS start date. If you do not defer your application within 30 days of your SEVIS start date, you will be required to submit a new online application and pay the $125 application fee again. You can find your SEVIS start date on the I-20 document you received from Global Launch.
To defer your application, you must email GlobalLaunch@asu.edu and include the following information:
Your full name as listed in your passport
Your ASU ID number
The session to which you want to defer your attendance
Your chosen way to study (on campus or online). Please note that additional information may be required for student who wish to defer from online to on-campus immersion.
