Prospective Students

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are critical to our mission at Rush.  We strive to be a learning community where students, faculty, residents and fellows of all backgrounds feel welcomed and supported, and have the opportunity to share their own experiences. Join us!  Rush University welcomes international student applicants.
 
To become a F-1 international student at Rush University you must first be admitted into an academic program. You are an international student applicant if you need a F-1 visa to study at Rush and reside in the United States. F-1 students are eligible to attend a Rush program if they will be studying full-time (as defined by the university) and as long as their courseload each term aligns with the Student and Exchange Visitor Program’s limits on online classes for F-1 students.
 
If you are accepted by the program you have applied to, be sure to email International_Students@rush.edu for access to the international student application. In order to issue an I-20 or accept a transferred I-20 from another institution, International Student Services needs additional documentation which you will upload to our I-20 Request form.
