Going forward, please base your payments on invoices from Lawrence Tech. They will cover the expected cost of tuition and on-campus housing. Payments for off-campus housing, or other personal living expenses should be sent to your personal bank account, not the university. Payments received in excess of the amount billed will either be placed on deposit for an upcoming semester or returned to the sender. In the case of wire transfers, the wire transfer will be reversed to return funds back to the originating account.
Send us the information page of your passport. We will use the information to enter you into the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). You will be responsible for paying the SEVIS fee. To pay the fee go to the Student and Exchange Visitor (SEVP) I-901 SEVIS Fee Processing Website.
If you are in the U.S. studying on an F-1 student visa, you are able to transfer your current SEVIS record to Lawrence Tech after you have received your offer of admission and completed the steps above. Have your SEVIS record transferred by your current school to LTU using our school code of DET214F00335000.
Pay the I-901 Fee (SEVIS Fee) at www.fmjfee.com. Once the payment is completed, print the I-901 receipt.
Students may enter the US up to 30 days prior to the program start date listed on the I-20. When at the border, students will need to produce the I-901 receipt and I-20 for the border agent. Upon clearance, the agent will provide the student with an I-94 Entry/Departure Record.
