Florida Hospital College of Health Sciences (FHCHS) is enriched by the diverse body of international students on campus. It is our goal to educate international students as to their responsibility as the recipient of an F-1 Visa from the United States government. The following information will help explain how to stay in status. Failing to maintain status is serious and could result in removal (deportation). It is each student’s responsibility to make sure that all Department of Homeland Security (DHS) rules and regulations pertaining to international students are observed.
The International Student Advisor in the Office of Enrollment Services is happy to assist our students with documentation, application for Practical Training, and other individual needs. The following regulations apply to currently enrolled international students only. Florida Hospital College is currently accepting a limited number of applications from new international students requiring an F Visa. Contact the Office of Enrollment Services for pre-screening criteria. Additionally, FHCHS does not admit international students on Probation status. A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50 must be presented during admission review in order to be eligible to study at the College.
