Getting Started

Many students (and parents) find themselves overwhelmed at the idea of applying to study in the U.S. The number of tasks to juggle can seem daunting - application timelines, standardized tests, choosing universities, obtaining letters of recommendation, applying for a student visa etc. and can cause even the bravest students to wonder whether they can manage it. Indian students must also balance the usual grind of high school assignments, board exams, and other work.

Don't panic! We are here to help. Students living in New Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata or Mumbai can start by attending a basic information session at a USIEF office in India. Students living in other cities can attend an online webinar or call our EducationUSA Advising Help Desk. And there is more than enough information and advice on our website! Students are also advised to download our handout on undergraduate.

Proper planning and timely execution is the key to managing the application process and achieving optimal results. Attending specialized sessions conducted by EducationUSA@USIEF can help clarify many issues. Attending educational fairs and interacting with U.S. university representatives enhances your understanding of different universities and their unique offerings.

Drawing up a practical timeline is essential to ensuring that you set deadlines and prioritize your work.
