American colleges and universities offer three basic programs:

  1. Associate’s Degree – This is an academic program taken by students after secondary school, prior to a Bachelors course. It provides students with basic academic and technical knowledge and skills necessary for employment or for furthering their education.
  2. Undergraduate –The duration of undergraduate programs in the US is four years. Since associate degrees are cheaper than bachelor degrees, many Americans prefer to go through two years of associate degree leading to two years of their chosen undergraduate program.
  3. Master –Master degrees in the US vary from 1.5 to two years.

VISA PROCESS

Studying in the US requires an F1 visa. This academic student visa is issued to international students who intend to enroll in colleges and universities, or join an English language program. You’re allowed to remain in the US for up to 60 days beyond the time it takes to complete your degree, unless you have applied and have been approved to stay for a limited period under the OPT program

You should only apply for the F1 visa after receiving your acceptance letter, which states your enrolment.
