Graduate and Professional Programs International Student Requirements On campus programs: International students on an F-1 visa are not eligible to study in any of the on campus Graduate and Professional Programs (GPP) at Emmanuel College. These are part-time programs and continual full-time attendance, which is required to maintain lawful F-1 status, is not possible in GPP programs due to time conflicts and course sequencing issues. Therefore Emmanuel College cannot issue I-20s for F-1 visas for any of its GPP programs. Non-immigrants with a visa status other than F-1 are welcome to apply to Emmanuel's Graduate and Professional Programs, as long as their visa status allows them to enroll in a degree program on a part-time basis. Online programs: International students may study in fully online programs because there is no residency requirement and a visa is not required. Admissions Requirements 1.
