Frequently Asked Questions

Bound by the student visa laws, you will not be eligible to work off-campus as you pursue any degree in US schools. On campus, you can work for 20 hours a week and expect to earn 1000-2000 USD a year. This should be sufficient to pay for personal expenses, but not tuition or living fees. You can seek financial assistance while working part-time or interning through International Student Office, the catering department or the Library et al.

Most US universities evaluate your scores on standardized tests such as SAT I (Scholastic Aptitude Test), SAT II (subject test), or ACT (American College Testing). Some universities/colleges do not require SAT II scores if you have taken the ACT.

Depending on the course you are applying for, graduate programs in US colleges and universities may require you to take one or more of these standardized tests- TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language ), GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) , GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test , LSAT (Law School Admission Testing Program ), MCAT (Medical College Admission Test), DAT (Dental Admission Testing Program, PCAT (Pharmacy College Admission Test), and OAT (Optometry Admission Testing Program).

It bids well for you if this process starts early. You should ideally begin 12-18 months before the date of enrolment for the courses of your choice. An Early Decision (ED) will allow you ample time to prepare a good application and avail scholarships or financial assistance. There are two major admission seasons/sessions for the same: Fall (late August to late December) and Spring (Late January to early May)

The duration of an undergraduate program in the US is 4 years and you need to have completed 12 years of education according to the schools in India in order to apply for these courses.

Indian students who are not proficient in English are advised to take TOEFL (Test of English as Foreign Language) or any other English language exams such as IELTS or Pearson for ensuring admission in a US college/university, as well as convenience of communication during the stay there.

A private university is more flexible in providing scholarships as compared to public universities. Scholarships, assistant-ships, and fellowships are available to all international students on the basis of merit.

There are three kinds of accommodation that a student may take up within the United States: On-campus accommodation, off-campus accommodation, or host-family accommodation- where the student may choose to live with a university-sponsored American family.

The average cost of tuition at a private university, including living cost, would be approximately US $50,000 per academic year without financial aid or scholarships. Further, the fee structure depends on whether you are studying in a state, public, or private university. At EdNet we keep in mind your budgetary requirements and academic needs when applying to specific schools.

In order to be accredited, schools need to have physical documentation for each student’s file. Unless you are from a country where the first language is English, such as Canada, Australia, or the UK, you will need to submit physical the proof of proficiency.

Certain schools do process admission applications under these circumstances, provided the application and documents are in order. Sometimes, you may receive a ‘conditional’ acceptance, where your admission is kept in the waiting list until your final scores of undergraduate study are released.

We suggest you apply to the college or university best suited for you that offers a general or specialized course in your field of interest. While it is ideal to seek and consequently gain admission in the best universities, the acceptance rate of these schools is only 1-4%.

For the same, our Director, Mrs. Niharika Sondhi, has visited 303 colleges and universities in the States to gain a comprehensive understanding of the campus life and academic communities.

Along with your application form, you would need academic transcripts, a resume, letters of recommendation, test scores, a statement of purpose, supplemental essays, and a portfolio or contact sheet in case you are a design student. At EdNet, we assist you with each of these requirements for a foolproof application.

Meanwhile, students who gain a STEM degree (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) as per the US guidelines can extend this period to a total of 36 months. Additionally, students can seek permanent jobs and apply for permanent work visa during this duration.

An associate degree is a two-year long program (both at graduate and undergraduate level) that is specific to a niche discipline or vocation and can be extended to a full time program.

Yes! You can definitely apply for a course that allows you to explore two disciplines at the same time. Additionally, you can apply for a joint degree, which means you gain both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree upon graduation after 4-5 years of continued studies.

A unique and exciting system of education, the liberal arts is hugely popular in the US.
