Submit a statement of financial solvency for the amount of $15,000 ($9,100 for Canadian commuter students). This information is required for all students planning to enter the United States. It is required by St. Clair County Community College in compliance with regulations set forth by the U.S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Submit signed F-1 Contract form (found in the International Student Application for Admission).
Upon completion of the steps listed above, students will be issued a Form I-20. Applicants are required to pay a $200 SEVIS I-901 fee when issued a Form I-20. If you need a visa to enter the United States (visa-exempt countries include Canada and Bermuda), you must pay the SEVIS I-901 fee before going to the United States embassy or consulate for your visa interview.
You may complete the I-901 form and make payment by using the following options:
This is the fastest option. Go to www.fmjfee.com. Payment via credit or debit card is required. Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted credit cards. Debit cards must contain the logo of either Visa or MasterCard.

International students are required to report to the SC4 International Programs Coordinator within ten days of arrival to the United States. International students are required to complete pre-enrollment steps including online orientation, academic assessments and academic advising before being allowed to register. Tuition for classes must be paid at the time of registration.

Note: The Lambton County Tuition Reciprocity Agreement is subject to change without notice by action of the Board of Trustees.
All Canadian residents living outside Lambton County are charged foreign student tuition rates. Canadian students planning to commute must obtain a Form I-20 from the Enrollment Services Office each semester. The Form I-20 is required to cross the U.S./Canada border. Because SC4 is located within 75 miles of the port of entry, Canadian commuter students are permitted to attend part-time.
