We know that applying to a program of study can be a big decision and challenging process! To help you in your decision and application process, please see common questions and answers below.

How do I apply?
To apply to MLC, complete our online application form.

How can I pay the application fee?
New students will be able to pay the $100.00 nonrefundable application fee when they apply online to MLC. They may pay by credit card via PayPal.

How long does it take to send the Form I-20 to me?
It takes up to 2 business days to process a complete application. If MLC sends the Form I-20 by express mail, there is an express mail fee that needs to be paid in advance. This fee depends on the postal code of the country. It should arrive at its destination within 3 business days. If the I-20 is sent by airmail, there is no additional charge. Arrival time varies by country.

How much does express mail cost?
The potential student should provide MLC with the complete mailing address including a postal code if one exists. MLC will then determine the cost and let the applicant know. The cost is usually between $50.00-125.00.

How long does the application process take?
From the time MLC receives a completed application, including all necessary payments, it will take up to 2 business days to process the application and issue the Form I-20.

When should I apply for an I-20?
We strongly recommend that students apply for a session that is at least 30-60 days away. For example, a student applying for the March session could apply in January for the I-20. This gives the student sufficient time to receive the I-20 from MLC, make a visa appointment and the U.S. Consulate, make travel plans to the U.S., and arrive in time for the session listed on the I-20. If a student must arrive later that the session stated on the I-20, MLC may have to defer the student to the next session, reissue the I-20 and resend it. The student would need to pay a $50.00 reissue fee and the express mail fee again. Applying for a session that is 30-60 days later will help a student to avoid these extra fees.
