how do you manage the I-20 requirements for short-term programs? Do you add them to your I-17?

I have to run to another meeting but thanks so much for this thoughtful presentation and sharing your great practical advice, Andie! Sounds like you are taking a really smart and deliberate approach!
Susan Strow

Columbia College Chicago runs a summer program for high school students in which international students have participated and a few have subsequently enrolled. Students get 3 transferable credits.

However, I still need to get it on our I-17 so I can issue F-1 visas. We use J right now but that means we can't charge the full fare and depend on a scholarship even where not merited.

Andie, very informative session, will you be able to post the presentation on the IEI website?
Ally Mangia
I work for Cambridge Education Group which runs the pathway program for international students at IIT. Students matriculate after an academic year after meeting the GPA requirements.

I'm at a community college and our previous PDSO did not have certificate/non-degree programs listed on our I-17 and believed students could not get visas for these degrees. Knowing that's not the case, as the new PDSO I recently got certificate programs added to our I-17 to help with both boosting enrollment numbers and getting students into the pipeline which you talked about. We have many enticing certificate programs and if I can interest a student in coming to our school for those, then perhaps they'll want to stay to complete an Associates and then transfer for Bachelors, Masters, etc.
