Immigration Documents

It is very important to ensure that you have the proper entry clearance for entering and studying in the U.S (F-1/J-1 visa, I-20 or DS 2019, U.S. passport). Apply for your F1 visa in plenty of time so that you are not delayed in travelling to the U.S. in time for orientation and classes. Make sure to bring your immigration papers (I-20, passport, visa, I-901 SEVIS Fee receipt, banking statements), Millsaps paperwork (admission letter), and any additional identification paperwork (birth certificate with translation, driving license) in your carry-on luggage. If you have questions about the immigration process contact Molly West or Austin Moore at


Health Insurance

All F-1 international students and U.S. citizens coming from abroad that do not have established U.S. insurance policies are required to have the Millsaps College health insurance policy, International Student Protection, while enrolled. You will automatically be enrolled and billed through the Business Office along with tuition and fees for International Student Protection’s Trailblazer Plan (Pioneer Plan for Athletes). You will receive your insurance card during orientation, along with a summary of your plan. Please review the policy information and discuss with your family if you require additional coverage before arriving at Millsaps. The U.S. healthcare system is likely very different from healthcare and insurance in your home country -- including more out-of-pocket expenses.
