Age and International Documentation Requirements

Students must be in high school, have completed their sophomore year and be 16 to 18 years old (born between August 11, 1998 and July 1, 2001). This doesn't apply to commuters in the AP/EA program who have a permanent address within Allegheny County.

Due to the lengthy process for obtaining international documentation we recommend that international students be mindful of the application deadline. Applying earlier will provide the time necessary to process information as quickly as possible for I-20 administration. Students who receive an I-20 from Carnegie Mellon must arrive on Thursday, June 29, 2017 in order to complete a mandatory immigration check-in on Friday, June 30, 2017 to maintain legal status in the U.S.
