INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Tamalpa Institute is approved by the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for issuance of M-1 vocational student visas for the Level 1 and Level 2 Immersion format Training Program. The Institute will aid in filing appropriate paperwork to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and serve as the liaison between the student and SEVIS.

When we receive a student’s Training Program deposit, we will send the student visa information sheet and then provide the student with the required I-20 form. The student will need to contact their local American embassy/consulate to arrange for a visa interview. Students should allow at least 3 months to apply for the visa. Tamalpa does not charge any fees for the above-mentioned assistance.

ENGLISH PROFICIENCY

Students must be proficient in the English language to attend Tamalpa’s Training Program. Tamalpa does not provide translation services or instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL). Instruction will be in English. Students who do not have English as their primary language must take a test such as the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and must provide a minimum score of 79 (internet-based test) or 500 (written test) or students can take the IELTS test, providing a minimum score of 6.5. English proficiency is required and is also assessed through the application materials received and by an interview with the Program Director.

ABILITY TO BENEFIT STUDENTS

Non-High School graduates or the equivalent must be at least 18 years of age (beyond the age of compulsory attendance) and will be required to pass the Ability-to-Benefit test prior to signing an enrollment agreement with the institute. Our institution uses the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test (WBST) Verbal forms (VS-1 & VS-2) and Quantitative Forms (QS-1 & QS-2). The institution’s administrative team will provide applicants with additional information as how to arrange for the Ability-to-Benefit test.

All Ability-to-Benefit students must take and pass the test prior to admissions. This test is approved by the U.S. Department of Education, with a passing score of 200 for the Verbal test and a passing score of 210 for the Quantitative test.
Please note that a student enrolled in an unaccredited institution is not eligible for federal financial aid programs.
