Education & Career guidance How to study Following is the proven methodology to study & is highly recommended, in particular for the subjects like Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Accounting, etc. It is suggested to have complete set of study material like text books, reference guides, notes from class and tuition, ideal answer sheets & question set of previous examinations, good quality paper or un-used note book handy. It is also essential to have a fresh mood, peaceful environment, happy & motivated mind, good infrastructure like table-chair, pen, compass, good intensity of light, etc. Now let us begin. 1. Let us define a unit of study. It can be like a paragraph or a topic or a page or a chapter of a book. As suiting to your ability and complexity of the subject, please choose the unit for study.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 8 2. Read the complete content from entire study material. Understand its concept and grasp it fundamentally. At this point you have read content from various study material thus you know the best and whole of the content. This is a union set of the entire content which you have read. 3. Write important points on a good sheet of paper. Also remember formulae by heart. Use rough paper to practice formulae. Conserve these working sheets. 4. Practice by writing the entire content as if you are writing in examination. Check if you could write more than 70% of the entire content. It should be as high as possible. Also check that you have not missed any important point. 5. Practice this till you are satisfied. Then read the entire content once again. 6. Now move on to next unit of study. Thus keep repeating till closure of the chapter. 7. Now solve the exercises or questions or problems given at the end of the chapter. Conserve the note books or sheets by filing those appropriately. While solving problem/exercise/question write the chapter number, problem/exercise/question number correctly so that during study of final examination you will be able to locate those quickly. 8. Try to solve the problem/exercise/question of last question papers. Compare your answer with answer in answer-sheets. Check the possible areas of improvement and practice to follow the best of the standards. Importance of time and preparing time table You must have heard that Time is money! It’s extremely important to understand the value of the time. To realise the value of Time of  1 Year – Ask a student who has failed in examination  1 Month – Ask a mother who has delivered premature baby in 8th month  1 Week – Ask an editor who has to publish a weekly magazine  1 Day – Ask a daily wager heading family of eight & feed them on daily basis  1 Hour – Ask a lover who is waiting to meet  1 Minute – Ask a person who has missed a train by just a minute  1 Second – Ask a person who has survived an accident just by a second alert  1 milli-Second – Ask a runner who won the Gold medal by a milli-second Time waits for no one, treasure every moment you have, conserve & utilise every second. If you do not respect your time, who will? Please remember that time once elapsed, never comes back again. There lies an importance of disciplined life. Discipline comes from planning various activities for every day and every hour of the day and executing those as planned. The best way is to prepare a time table and follow religiously. There are two kind of time table. A. during school day & B. during holiday Let us prepare time table studying the sample time table as below for a day of school. Feel free to modify start – end time of any activity as needed at your convenience, liking and habit. E.g. few of you may want to start study during early hours of a day say at 4:0 am so sleeping during 10:0 pm to 4:0 am or few may want to study till little late say till 2:0 am so modify sleeping hours at your convenience.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 9 Sample time table during school / college day Time table of various activities during School / College # Time slot Hours Preferred topic Remark 1 12:00:00 AM - 6:00 am 6 hours Sound Sleep Rest 2 6:00 am - 7:00 am 1.0 hour Exercise, Morning walk, Yoga, Meditation, Get ready (Bath, Breakfast) Feel Fresh 3 7:00 am - 2:00 pm 7 hours School / College 4 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm 1.0 hours Lunch, TV, Friends, Chat, Internet, etc 5 3:00 pm - 6:0 pm 3 hours Study 6 6:0 pm to 6:30 pm 30 min Indoor-Outdoor Games Entertainment 7 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm 3 hours Tuition / Study 8 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm 1.0 hour Dinner, TV, Friend, Chat, etc Relaxation 9 10:30 pm to 12:0 am 1.5 hours Study Now let us make changes if it is a holiday. We have a great opportunity to study for longer hours. It is important to catch up study at home with school / tuition classes at least by week-end. Sample time table for holiday Time table of various activities during holiday # Time slot Hours Preferred topic Remark 1 12:00 AM - 6:00 am 6 hours Sound Sleep Rest 2 6:00 am - 7:00 am 1.0 hour Exercise, Morning walk, Yoga, Meditation, Get ready (Bath, Breakfast) 3 7:00 am - 10:30 am 3.5 hours Study 4 10:30 - 11:00 am 30 min News Paper, discussions with friends, etc 5 11:00 am - 2:0 pm 3 hours Study 6 2:00 pm - 3:0 pm 1.0 hours Lunch, TV, Friends, Chat, Internet, Group discussions, problem solving, etc 7 3:00 pm - 6:0 pm 3 hours Study 8 6:0 pm to 6:30 pm 30 min Indoor-Outdoor Games Entertainment 9 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm 3 hours Study 10 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm 1.0 hour Dinner, TV, Friend, Chat, etc Relaxation 11 10:30 pm to 12:0 am 1.5 hours Study You are suggested to discuss with close friends, teachers and parents. Seek their views & feedback and finalise it. Once it is final, take prints of these time table and clip at the study desk. Seek help from parents to follow as closely. Please modify little bit if needed but be determined to follow it strictly. Remember your determination will make you different!
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 10 Also it is proved that if you help solving queries for your friends, you will be more hands-on and clear about the subject and content. So utilize free time to help your friends Teacher’s section Following topics like understanding volume of study & calculating availability of the time are the best determined by the teachers. Most of the data generally remains the same like various books, note books, their pages, problems in each chapter, etc. Also no. of days for the school and holidays are better known to the teachers. Thus it is suggested that teachers to prepare the base data and handover to the students. Also following tables to be prepared using Microsoft product – Excel. How to understand volume of study Now a day there is a flood of study material like text books, guides from various publications, notes given by tuition classes, etc. It is important to understand the volume of study and to calculate how much average time would be needed to study entire syllabus in planned manner. Let us try to calculate total volume of study and on an average how much time would be required. Assume that  Average time required to study a page in hours = 15 minutes (0.25 hours)  Average time required to solve a problem in hours = 12 minutes (0.2 hours) Sample table indicating how to calculate time required for study & problem solving* # Subject No. of Pages Hrs required for pages No. of problems Hrs required for problem Total hrs required Guide Book Tuition Total Guide Book Tuition Total 1 Math-I 180 240 200 620 155 300 200 250 750 150 305 2 Math- II 160 220 180 560 112 260 180 190 630 126 238 3 Phy - I 4 Phy - II Total hours required for study and problem solving in Hours 543 Prepare a table listing the subjects, no of pages & problems in each book like text book, guide, tution note, etc. Add up no of pages and problems and multiply by unit time. Thus you will get no of hours needed to study the total pages and to solve the problems per subject. Sum up the time needed for studying all the subjects to know the entire time requirement. * - Please note that above is sample calculation. Each student needs to fill-in the complete details and determine total time required for study & problem solving. It depends on his or her aptitude, knowledge and subject complexity & varies from student to student. How to calculate availability of time for the student It is good to know for the teachers and student how many hours are available for studying at home for the entire duration of the academic year. Let us assume  No of hours available for self study when school is there – 8 hours per day  No of hours available for self study when school/ college has holiday – 14 hours per day
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 11 Availability of the total hours available for student in a year for self study Availability of the total hours for study # Month Days with college Days during holidays Total days Hours during college days Hours during holidays Total Hours available 1 Jun to Nov 129 51 180 1,029 771 1,800 2 Dec to Feb 4 86 90 32 1,290 1,322 3,122 Prepare a table listing all the months, and no. of days with & without college. Multiply the days & no. of study hours per day to calculate no of total hours available. Thus from above Tables, teachers & students will be able to judge if there is sufficient time available for the study. This will help to plan the study matching to the hours available. Please note that above tables are sample and each student needs to prepare these tables. Students are requested to seek guidance from parents and teachers for accurate calculation and allocation of time to each subject. Tracking the completion of study Appeal to parents – It is a special request to all parents to offer quality time and useful guidance and encouraging to the child for study. Following table suggests how to track the completion of study by the student& understand the status periodically. If there is lag, kindly guide without pressuring to catch up the portion of study. This is to be tracked from the beginning for every week or at least fortnightly. Tracking the progress of study for various subjects # Subject No. of lessons No. of Pages school- status Studied lessons Studied Pages % Completed study % Balance Study 1 English 31 109 55% 15 52 48% 52% 2 Marathi 22 68 64% 11 34 50% 50% 3 Hindi 27 90 93% 15 45 50% 50% 4 Math- 1 11 55 91% 7 40 73% 27% 5 Math -2 8 48 88% 6 36 75% 25% 6 Sci -1 12 60 92% 9 45 75% 25% 7 Sci- 2 12 48 100% 9 36 75% 25% 8 Histrory 11 33 82% 6 18 55% 45% 9 Geography 12 36 58% 8 24 67% 33% 10 EVS 11 33 18% 4 12 36% 64% Planning of study for examination You have put in sincere efforts and studied well throughout the year. Now examination dates are declared. Let us prepare a schedule of study for examination. We will plan for four revisions. Let us use Microsoft Excel to prepare a schedule as below.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 12 Planning for study for examination Month Study from examination point of views Revision Exam days # Subject 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 1 Subject-1 2 Subject-2 3 Subject-3 4 Subject-4 You can plan this once examination dates are declared. Procedure to prepare a schedule 1. In the column “subject”, mention various subjects in reverse order of examination. i.e. examination of last subject enter as # 1, and so on. 2. Prepare a calendar marking the dates from today till last date of examination mentioning the dates in each cell (e.g. from 1st till 28th in above calendar) 3. Mark the subject wise examination calendar at the end of calendar 4. Mark in exactly reverse manner & assign one day to each subject for the revision, starting from just one day prior to first paper in reverse manner thus forming a “V” curve. 5. Then assign 3 to 6 days for each subject based on volume & complexity of the subject, how much you already have studied, etc in reverse manner. 6. Mark one day out of these 3 – 6 days for a revision and other study (studying answer sheets, earlier question set, etc) 7. Check if the first day of planning is earlier than today. In that case you have to reduce no. of days allocated to each subject. 8. Check if the first day of planning is later than today, then you have to assign few more days to couple of subjects. 9. Please include practical examination and at least 1-2 days for study for the same. 10.Thus you will have atleast 3 revisions of the subject as follow a. First revision when you study subject at stretch, you have reserve 1 day for revision b. Second revision just prior the start of examination for a day, V shape, left line c.Third revision is between the hours after you come home from the examination paper and go to examination of next subject on second day, you get almost 14-16 hours for study. (out 24 hours minus 6-7 hours of sleep minus 2 hours of lunch, dinner, getting ready, travelling, discussions, etc) Precautions 1. Note that you have noted the examination time table accurately. Recheck yourself and verify from your friend. 2. You have sound sleep during examination. Keep cool & happy mood, learn to control the thoughts. 3.

    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 16 1. Know your abilities, attributes and aspirations 2. Know the skills, are you prepared to upgrade & enhance those? Your potential can be turned to the performance. 3. Know your style 4. Know your family, their support, influence, etc 5. Your value system and upbringing 6. Then set the goal and re-evaluate the options You must know that career building is a path which you need to walk with patience, keep achieving milestones one after another. Following “9 P” keeps it going. You may not run but do not stop. Tips for wonderful career 1. Remember the quotes by former president of India, Dr. Abdul Kalam “Dream is not what you see in sleep. It is something that does not let you sleep!” 2. Try to select a career in such a way that you set to be unique & differentiate from the crowd. E.g. If you are programmer or software engineer, you might be one of few lacs students graduating every year. If you are post graduate engineer say M.Tech or MS, you will be within very few thousands. Further if you know any foreign language say Japanese, you will be among just among few hundred students. Thus you are one where there is a high demand and fewer resources like you are available. Obviously you will have a huge respect and demand. 3. Aiming low is a crime! 4. You are what you believe! 5. Seek education compatible to career choice you have selected or decided, aim for the highest technical education in your field, do the best.

Always work with 2 plans, main Plan A which you will execute to 99.9% probability and fall back plan B, in case for some unfortunate reason you could not attempt & execute plan A.

Entrance test for qualifying graduation study - About SAT The SAT is a standardized test for most college admissions in the United States. The SAT is owned, published, and developed by the College Board, a nonprofit organization in the United States. It was formerly developed, published, and scored by the Educational Testing Service which still administers the exam. The test is intended to assess a student's readiness for college. It was first introduced in 1926, and its name and scoring have changed several times. It was first called the Scholastic Aptitude Test, then the Scholastic Assessment Test. The current SAT Reasoning Test, introduced in 2005, takes three hours and forty-five minutes to finish, and costs $50 ($81 International), excluding late fees. Possible scores range from 600 to 2400, combining test results from three 800-point sections (Mathematics, Critical Reading, and Writing). Taking the SAT or its competitor, the ACT, is required for freshman entry to many, but not all, universities in the United States. Function The College Board states that SAT measures literacy and writing skills that are needed for academic success in college. They state that the SAT assesses how well the test takers analyze and solve problems—skills they learned in school that they will need in college. The SAT is typically taken by high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. Specifically, the College Board states that use of the SAT in combination with high school grade point average (GPA) provides a better indicator of success in college than high school grades alone, as measured by college freshman GPA. Various studies conducted over the lifetime of the SAT show a statistically significant increase in correlation of high school grades and freshman grades when the SAT is factored in. SAT (and ACT) scores are intended to supplement the secondary school record and help admission officers put local data—such as course work, grades, and class rank—in a national perspective. SAT has been more popular among colleges on the coasts and the ACT more popular in the Midwest and South. There are some colleges that require the ACT to be taken for college course placement, and a few schools that formerly did not accept the SAT at all. Nearly all colleges accept the test. While the exact manner in which SAT scores will help to determine admission of a student at American institutions of higher learning is generally a matter decided by the individual institution, some foreign countries like
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 32 India have made SAT (and ACT) scores a legal criterion in deciding whether holders of American high school diplomas will be admitted at their public universities. Structure SAT consists of three major sections: Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. Each section receives a score on the scale of 200–800. All scores are multiples of 10. Total scores are calculated by adding up scores of the three sections. Each major section is divided into three parts. There are 10 sub-sections, including an additional 25-minute experimental or "equating" section that may be in any of the three major sections. The experimental section is used to normalize questions for future administrations of the SAT and does not count toward the final score. The test contains 3 hours and 45 minutes of actual timed sections; most administrations (after including orientation, distribution of materials, completion of biographical sections, and eleven minutes of timed breaks) run for about four and a half hours. The questions range from easy, medium, and hard depending on the scoring from the experimental sections. Easier questions typically appear closer to the beginning of the section while harder questions are toward the end in certain sections. This is not true for every section (the Critical Reading section is in chronological order) but it is the rule of thumb mainly for math and the 19 sentence completions on the test. SAT exam pattern The SAT exam is designed to assess the skills of thinking and logical reasoning of the candidates. These are the basic skills that you acquire in your schools, but are highly valued at the college level as well. The purpose of conducting this exam is to evaluate students for their writing, reading as well as mathematical skills. The total duration of the exam is 3 hours and 45 minutes. The SAT exam is divided into SAT Reasoning Test and SAT subject based Test. If you want to take admission in any US college on the basis of SAT reasoning score, it is just not enough to secure a seat in US colleges. But on the other hand, some colleges also consider the score of the subjects based exam. In most of the cases when we say SAT exam, it meant to the SAT reasoning test. SAT reasoning test: Exam Type Mainly objective & some writing section Question Type Multiple choice question Subject No of questions Marks Critical Reading 67 800 Mathematics 54 800 Writing English 49 (MCQ) 800 Total Questions 170 (MCQ) Maximum marks 2400 Marks of each correct answer Not specific Total time for exam 200 Minutes
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 33 Writing: This section has essay type question section and multiple choice type questions. The essay section has allocated the time of 25 minutes. Critical Reading: The critical reading section is divided into three sub-sections. The questions asked in this section are based on either short passage reading or long passage reading. The questions are multiple choice based questions. These questions generally evaluate a student's writing skills. Mathematics: Mathematics section also consists of three sections. The total time allotted to this section is 70 minutes. Eligibility for SAT exam: Students can appear in this exam either after completion of their Class XII from a recognised Indian university or education board or they can also take this test while studying in ClassXII or Class XI. The students should keep college deadlines in mind while appearing in the exam. The scores that are finally considered depends upon the fact that in which college you want to apply. Students can reappear for the exam, but this action is not fruitful if higher scores are not expected. Critical Reading The Critical Reading (formerly Verbal) section of the SAT is made up of three scored sections: two 25- minute sections and one 20-minute section, with varying types of questions, including sentence completions and questions about short and long reading passages. Critical Reading sections normally begin with 5 to 8 sentence completion questions; the remainder of the questions are focused on the reading passages. Sentence completions generally test the student's vocabulary and understanding of sentence structure and organization by requiring the student to select one or two words that best complete a given sentence. The bulk of the Critical Reading section is made up of questions regarding reading passages, in which students read short excerpts on social sciences, humanities, physical sciences, or personal narratives and answer questions based on the passage. Certain sections contain passages asking the student to compare two related passages; generally, these consist of shorter reading passages. The number of questions about each passage is proportional to the length of the passage. Unlike in the Mathematics section, where questions go in the order of difficulty, questions in the Critical Reading section go in the order of the passage. Overall, question sets near the beginning of the section are easier, and question sets near the end of the section are harder. Mathematics An example of a "grid in" mathematics question in which the answer should be written into the box below the question. The Mathematics section of the SAT is widely known as the Quantitative Section or Calculation Section. The mathematics section consists of three scored sections. There are two 25-minute sections and one 20-minute section, as follows: One of the 25-minute sections is entirely multiple choice, with 20 questions. The other 25-minute section contains 8 multiple choice questions and 10 grid-in questions. For grid-in questions, test-takers write the answer inside a grid on the answer sheet. Unlike multiple choice questions, there is no penalty for incorrect answers on grid-in questions because the test-taker is not limited to a few possible choices. The 20-minute section is all multiple choice, with 16 questions.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 34 The SAT has done away with quantitative comparison questions on the math section, leaving only questions with symbolic or numerical answers. New topics include Algebra II and scatter plots. These recent changes have resulted in a shorter, more quantitative exam requiring higher level mathematics courses relative to the previous exam. Calculator use Four-function, scientific, and graphing calculators are permitted on the SAT math section; however, calculators are not permitted on either of the other sections. Calculators with QWERTY keyboards, cell phone calculators, portable computers, and personal organizers are not permitted. With the recent changes to the content of the SAT math section, the need to save time while maintaining accuracy of calculations has led some to use calculator programs during the test. These programs allow students to complete problems faster than would normally be possible when making calculations manually. The use of a graphing calculator is sometimes preferred, especially for geometry problems and exercises involving multiple calculations. According to research conducted by the CollegeBoard, performance on the math sections of the exam is associated with the extent of calculator use, with those using calculators on about a third to a half of the items averaging higher scores than those using calculators less frequently.The use of a graphing calculator in mathematics courses, and also becoming familiar with the calculator outside of the classroom, is known to have a positive effect on the performance of students using a graphing calculator during the exam. Writing SAT essay. This student received a 10/12 from two judges, each giving 5/6 The writing portion of the SAT, based on but not directly comparable to the old SAT II subject test in writing (which in turn was developed from the old TSWE), includes multiple choice questions and a brief essay. The essay subscore contributes about 28% to the total writing score, with the multiple choice questions contributing 70%. This section was implemented in March 2005 following complaints from colleges about the lack of uniform examples of a student's writing ability and critical thinking. The multiple choice questions include error identification questions, sentence improvement questions, and paragraph improvement questions. Error identification and sentence improvement questions test the student's knowledge of grammar, presenting an awkward or grammatically incorrect sentence; in the error identification section, the student must locate the word producing the source of the error or indicate that the sentence has no error, while the sentence improvement section requires the student to select an acceptable fix to the awkward sentence. The paragraph improvement questions test the student's understanding of logical organization of ideas, presenting a poorly written student essay and asking a series of questions as to what changes might be made to best improve it. The essay section, which is always administered as the first section of the test, is 25 minutes long. All essays must be in response to a given prompt. The prompts are broad and often philosophical and are designed to be accessible to students regardless of their educational and social backgrounds. For instance, test takers may be asked to expand on such ideas as their opinion on the value of work in human life or whether technological change also carries negative consequences to those who benefit
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 35 from it. No particular essay structure is required, and the College Board accepts examples "taken from [the student's] reading, studies, experience, or observations." Two trained readers assign each essay a score between 1 and 6, where a score of 0 is reserved for essays that are blank, off-topic, non-English, not written with a Number 2 pencil, or considered illegible after several attempts at reading. The scores are summed to produce a final score from 2 to 12 (or 0). If the two readers' scores differ by more than one point, then a senior third reader decides. The average time each reader/grader spends on each essay is less than 3 minutes. Style of questions Most of the questions on the SAT, except for the essay and the grid-in math responses, are multiple choice; all multiple-choice questions have five answer choices, one of which is correct. The questions of each section of the same type are generally ordered by difficulty. However, an important exception exists: Questions that follow the long and short reading passages are organized chronologically, rather than by difficulty. Ten of the questions in one of the math sub-sections are not multiple choice. They instead require the test taker to bubble in a number in a four-column grid. The questions are weighted equally. For each correct answer, one raw point is added. For each incorrect answer one-fourth of a point is deducted. No points are deducted for incorrect math grid-in questions. This ensures that a student's mathematically expected gain from guessing is zero. The final score is derived from the raw score; the precise conversion chart varies between test administrations. The SAT therefore recommends only making educated guesses, that is, when the test taker can eliminate at least one answer he or she thinks is wrong. Without eliminating any answers one's probability of answering correctly is 20%. Eliminating one wrong answer increases this probability to 25% (and the expected gain to 1/16 of a point); two, a 33.3% probability (1/6 of a point); and three, a 50% probability (3/8 of a point).

The test is typically offered on the first Saturday of the month for the November, December, May, and June administrations. . Candidates may take either the SAT Reasoning Test or up to three SAT Subject Tests on any given test date, except the first spring test date, when only the SAT Reasoning Test is offered. Candidates wishing to take the test may register online at the College Board's website, by mail, or by telephone, at least three weeks before the test date. The SAT Subject Tests are all given in one large book on test day. Therefore, it is actually immaterial which tests, and how many, the student signs up for; with the possible exception of the language tests
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 36 with listening, the student may change his or her mind and take any tests, regardless of his or her initial sign-ups. Students who choose to take more subject tests than they signed up for will later be billed by College Board for the additional tests and their scores will be withheld until the bill is paid. Students who choose to take fewer subject tests than they signed up for are not eligible for a refund. The SAT Reasoning Test costs $49 ($78 International, $99 for India and Pakistan, since the older testing system is in place). For the Subject tests, students pay a $22 ($49 International, $73 for India and Pakistan) Basic Registration Fee and $11 per test (except for language tests with listening, which cost $21 each). The College Board makes fee waivers available for low income students. Additional fees apply for late registration, standby testing, registration changes, scores by telephone, and extra score reports (beyond the four provided for free). Candidates whose religious beliefs prevent them from taking the test on a Saturday may request to take the test on the following day, except for the October test date in which the Sunday test date is eight days after the main test offering. Such requests must be made at the time of registration and are subject to denial. Students with verifiable disabilities, including physical and learning disabilities, are eligible to take the SAT with accommodations. The standard time increase for students requiring additional time due to learning disabilities is time + 50%; time + 100% is also offered. Raw scores, scaled scores, and percentiles Students receive their online score reports approximately three weeks after test administration (six weeks for mailed, paper scores), with each section graded on a scale of 200–800 and two sub scores for the writing section: the essay score and the multiple choice sub score. In addition to their score, students receive their percentile (the percentage of other test takers with lower scores). The raw score, or the number of points gained from correct answers and lost from incorrect answers (ranges from just under 50 to just under 60, depending upon the test), is also included. Students may also receive, for an additional fee, the Question and Answer Service, which provides the student's answer, the correct answer to each question, and online resources explaining each question.

Also collect all the relevant information on the education system of the country you wish to go for higher study. Based on the assessment, you may want to choose universities that best match your academic profile, personality and career goals. How to choose a overseas Graduate School / Post Graduate college Thoroughly research graduate programs and prospective career fields before becoming international graduate students – http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/international-student-counsel/2013/04/18/how-to-choose-a- us-graduate-school Check if university & program is well known within its circle Whether city / country offers you exciting career opportunities for the said program Finding the right graduate school is a time-consuming and arduous process, so consider the following factors to decide which school is your best bet. 1. Research your program based on legitimate sources: Check & verify Program rankings using credible U.S. websites to get an inside look at your program, including its prestige and standing. Learn more about a program consulting directly with faculty and current students with the help of faculty. 2. Take into account the locations of your school: If your field of study requires practical skills rather than theoretical knowledge, you should consider going to cities, because you will have a better chance of getting internships there than in small, rural towns. It's also important to know that many schools have campuses located in different cities or even different states. You need to figure out on which campus your program is located by visiting the school's website. Research the places of your potential future schools. You can ask questions like: What industries in my field are located there? What are the job or internship opportunities like in that place? 3. Know the details of your program: Find out the syllabus and how long your program is from the official website of the school since length of programs can vary by school even if the programs are similar. 4. Learn your career options: Since your final goal is to find a job, talk to alumni or career service advisers to learn what you can do and where you can go after graduation. Consult your school's international students and scholars office to find out about the Optional Practical Training program – which typically allows international students to work in the U.S. legally for one year after graduation as long as their jobs are related to their educational field – as well as about visas. Many offices' websites will also have information about applying for OPT.

    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 44 Test Prep: 6 Tips for GRE Success Need help mastering the GRE? These tips may help you tackle the test. Know what to expect before taking the GRE. Every year, more than 700,000 people take the Graduate Record Exam, commonly known as the GRE. GRE is most commonly taken as a computer-adaptive test, meaning there's no need for a pencil and those all-too-familiar bubble sheets. On the computer-based test, the difficulty of the questions is based on the accuracy of your answers to previous questions. The better you perform on the first sets of 20 verbal and quantitative reasoning questions, the harder the next sets of 20 questions will be. 1. Go back to high school: Many GRE test takers are many years removed from the basic tenets of high school math, which play an important part in the quantitative section of the test. If you're rusty, it's important to revisit the concepts of algebra and geometry that you learned in high school. Algebra and geometry are assumed background knowledge in college courses, and you will be hard- pressed to find a class to take at that level [that] will prepare you directly for questions of this type. 2. Sleep with your dictionary: While the GRE's quantitative section is not much more advanced than the math found in the SAT—and familiarity with concepts learned in high school should be enough to post a decent score—the verbal section went to college and graduated with honors in English. During your time in school, be sure to read as much as possible to expand your vocabulary so that you can decipher unfamiliar words, testing experts say. You can assimilate far more diverse vocabulary over four years of college than you could ever hope to by cramming for a few weeks or months prior to the GRE. It is extremely important for success on the qualitative sections of the GRE to be well read. Reading English news paper and preparing 25 new words to add up to your vocabulary will be of great support. 3. Take a GRE prep course (if you can afford it): GRE is designed specifically to differ from areas of study in college and is supposed to be a measure of a college graduates' critical thinking skills, not necessarily what they learned in school. The tutoring classes tend to pay off, but are a sizable investment. Generally students with good academic record need two months of preparation. If academic record is average or self confidence for preparing on your own is weak then good to join some coaching. "It's worth investing some time and money in preparing for the GRE," says Mitchell. "Critical thinking is something that's hard to change overnight because it's such a lifelong skill. We try to help people unlock their critical thinking skills by getting more familiar with the test and more familiar with proven methods." Another option for building critical thinking that's a little easier on the checkbook is using the free resources on the Educational Testing Services (ETS) website. Sample questions and essay responses, advice, and scoring guides are available online from the folks who created the GRE. 4. Take a practice test! While your vocabulary may be impeccable, your writing skills polished, and your quantitative abilities sharpened to a razor's edge, none of that matters if you're unaccustomed to the test's unconventional format. "To walk into this test unprepared, to sit down [and take it] having never done it before is suicide," notes Neill Seltzer, national GRE content director for the Princeton Review.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 45 Educational Testing Service, the Princeton Review, and Kaplan all have free computer adaptive tests online that help simulate what is a foreign experience to many. "It's different from the SAT, and that really threw me off the first time," says Amy Trongnetrpunya, who earned a perfect score on the quantitative section of the GRE after scoring poorly on her first try. "The computer-adaptive practice exam really helped." 5. Don't like your score? Take it again: Schools have access to any GRE scores for tests you've taken in the last five years, but experts claim that many universities only care about the best one. While this isn't true for all schools and all programs, many universities pull the highest scores from the GRE ticket they receive from ETS. The admissions officials (and sometimes work-study students) who receive the tickets are the first line of defense, and oftentimes, they record only the top score when they're compiling your file before sending it up the admissions food chain. "Even though ETS will report every score, the person reading that file and making the admissions decision may only see the highest math and highest verbal," says Seltzer. 6. Take a tough English course: Even if you aren't an English major and don't plan on writing the next great American novel, honing your writing skills is integral to overall success on the GRE. The two essays in the analytical section take up roughly one third of the time test takers are allotted. Some testing experts argue that near the end of college you should take a high-level English or writing course. While enduring a high-level writing course might put a small dent in the GPA (and ego) of non-English majors, it is an immense help when it's time to crank out two timed essays on the pressure-packed GRE. "I would emphasize taking a few rigorous English and writing college courses, in addition to test prep, to best prepare yourself for the caliber of questions you'll find on the GRE," says Alexis Avila, founder and president of Prepped & Polished, a Boston area-based college counseling and tutoring firm. GRE: The price will remain $160, but the new exam will last about four hours rather than three. It will also reflect key changes in the verbal and math sections. The current computer-adaptive test adjusts the difficulty of each successive problem based on whether the previous one is answered correctly. The new version will allow you to skip individual questions in a section, answer the others, then come back to address the unfinished portion. The computer will then score the section and modify the difficulty of the next part accordingly. This change enables test-takers to avoid losing time when they're stuck. By temporarily putting a problem aside, you can return to it and "see it with fresh eyes," says Neill Seltzer, national GRE content director for the Princeton Review test prep company. The content of the exam will change in other ways as well: • Writing: You'll still be asked to write two essays, but you can no longer choose the topic. The questions will also require "more focused" responses, according to Educational Testing Service (ETS), which administers the GRE. • Math: The revised exam will feature fewer geometry problems and will test your ability to interpret data in real-world scenarios. One bonus: You can use an on-screen calculator. • Verbal: Expect to be tested more on reading comprehension. Some sections may require you to select multiple answers to be correct, or to highlight portions of reading passages in your response. In another
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 46 break from the past, analogies and antonyms have been eliminated. David Payne, ETS's vice president and chief operating officer for higher education, says this is a definite improvement. Testing vocabulary out of context is "really pretty far removed from what you'll actually be doing in graduate school," he says. The changes reflect an effort to create a test that admissions officials can more easily interpret and that poses less of an ordeal for test-takers, Payne says. Scores will be adjusted, too, to range from 130 to 170 rather than 200 to 800 per section. The revised GRE will completely replace the current version on August 1 (though the first scores will not be available until November). The old test will be offered until then to those who wish to take it while spaces remain available at examination facilities. But Princeton Review's Seltzer doesn't think test takers should fret too much about the new exam. "There's a little bit of a shift in emphasis," he says, but "the content that's being tested is not changing fundamentally." GMAT: In June 2012, all GMATs will incorporate a new integrated reasoning section designed to assess how applicants juggle and analyze different forms of information at once. Test takers will have to review spreadsheets, written passages, scatter plots, and other visuals to address questions that might require them to select multiple correct answers. The ability to use and interpret information in different formats is precisely what business schools want to see, says Ashok Sarathy, vice president for GMAT operations for the Graduate Management Admission Council, which owns the GMAT. "It's not just a chart for a chart's sake." Still, Scott Shrum, director of M.B.A. admissions research for Veritas Prep, a California-based GMAT test prep and M.B.A. admissions consulting company, says, "If you've studied up correctly, you're not going to be surprised" by the new section. Shrum says test takers will also appreciate the inclusion of new mini case studies, which will allow for more creative and open-ended responses. In fact, Shrum notes, these kinds of questions are very similar to what companies ask business students applying for jobs. The official GMAT website will offer more details on the new test questions in the coming months. But remember, Seltzer advises, "Your score on this test is not tattooed on your forehead at birth." As with the GRE, you can take the exam up to five times a year. Retaking the test can make sense for those applying to schools that have a formal policy of considering only the best score an applicant achieves. Keep in mind that while the $250 GMAT remains the go-to test for many M.B.A. applicants, an increasing number of business schools are now accepting the GRE in addition to the GMAT—or instead of it. But you'll want to check with each institution to determine its policy (and the weight given to each exam) before making a decision to take one or both.

It is crucial that you have all of your paperwork with you. Double check this before you head out, as there will be some documents you need to bring in order to complete the appointment, like your passport. Remember that electronics, and other instruments like stapler, punching machines, etc, and your mobile phone, are not allowed inside the embassy Despite the potentially long wait, make sure you arrive at least half an hour before your appointment is due to start. Once your visa appointment is over, make sure you photocopy every important piece of paper, or scan and save all of your forms to a hard drive. Losing any piece of visa paperwork can land you in a mess, but the process of fixing that problem will be made marginally easier if you have at least one backup copy of all of your required forms. Keep everything together in a big folder, save copies on a hard drive and, of course, try not to lose any of the originals. Completing all of your visa requirements is an essential part of preparing to study in the U.S. If you find yourself stressed by all of these forms, just remind yourself that once you get the paperwork filed you can start planning the exciting parts of your new college experience.

US needs lot of work force by that time • Taxation is around 33% FAQ about admission Q : I have sent photocopies of GRE/TOEFL scores to universities. Still Do I need to send the scores officially? Ans - Yes, you must report GRE/TOEFL scores to universities through ETS. Sending photocopies is only for fast processing of your application. Q : When should I apply to Universities? Ans - Try to apply 5 to 9 months earlier than the application deadline dates. You would have more probability to get funding if you apply early. In order to get admission into some of the top universities some students apply earlier by 1 year of deadline. Q : Do I have chances of getting admission if I apply after deadline? Ans - Most of the Low ranked universities won't consider deadlines. You would have good chances of getting admission even if you apply after deadline. But this is not true in case of top universities. Q : What is GPA? What is my GPA? Ans - GPA means Grade point Average. It is the standard measure of performance of a student in USA. It is similar to the 100% scoring system in India. There is an institution called WES. They will evaluate your transcripts to calculate your GPA and send the reports to universities. Q : Would GRE/TOEFL scores is important than academic marks? Ans - Most of the universities will consider GRE/TOEFL score rather than academics. Admission committees consider standardized exams, like the GRE, MCAT, LSAT, and GMAT, to make comparisons among applicants from different countries and different universities. Therefore if you have a low academic percentage, it is essential having good test scores. Some of the universities like University of Cincinnati will consider strong academic % of a student rather than his GRE/TOEFL scores. Q : What is Form I20? Ans - A Form I-20 is a government form that tells the U.S. government that you are eligible for F-1 Student Status. It certifies that (1) you are or expect to be a "bona fide" student; 2) you meet admissions requirements; (3) you will pursue a full course of study; (4) you proved to us that you have enough money to study and live in the U.S. without working illegally or suffering from poverty.

There are two types of accommodation. 1. Type A - Within university campus, as managed by university 2. Type B – off campus, to be managed by individual Factors to be considered while deciding on campus or off-campus accommodation are mental ability to stay with international student and of any gender! Other factors like bus/local train connectivity, overall rent, inclusion/exclusion of utilities like electricity, internet, laundry, heat hot water, gas, proximity to supermarkets, malls or grocery stores to be checked. It is advised to stay close by. Research is required to decide to opt for on campus or off campus housing. Getting in touch with the seniors in the university always helps. Joining the Facebook & Yahoo groups for particular university helps in posting questions and doubts and seeking the inputs from the seniors which are to be further analysed. Individual research is recommended. Do not blindly follow what others do/say. Accommodation can be finalised remotely seeking url for rental accommodation, using internet search or from the seniors, having email communication with owners and later skype call if necessary, finalising agreement and paying the advance deposit & one month rent. Alternatively if you have any friend around the same locality, you can stay for 1-2 week with friend and search for better choices in person. If your accommodation is a bit far and if there is no direct bus facility then you might have to consider buying a second hand car. It is a car dependent country unless you are in a place which is well connected by path trains. Purchasing car could cost upto 5000 US$. How do students search for room partners? For on campus housing, the university decides who your roommate will be. However you can always give preference of your roommate but it is not guaranteed that the same person will be your roommate. For off campus housing, again, Facebook / Yahoo University groups helps. You can post your preferences for roommate or create a spreadsheet with details about your name, major, place you are from, preferred roommate: Gender, preferred eating style: veg/non veg etc. Once you have tentatively finalised roommate, preferred from the same or nearby city in India, you may want to meet, discuss in detail and understand the personality. Booking ticket Early booking of tickets may help save few bucks. You may want to visit all the travel sites to get an idea about the range of ticket cost. It is advised to fly minimum 2 weeks before the orientation to settle down, shop, and know the place, people and the university. Bulk booking and booking through agents
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 54 may save your time and its hassle free. You are suggested to check how much free baggage is allowed by the airline. It is good to weight the baggage at home before starting. Remember always: BE CAREFUL with ALL your documents all through your travel. The following documents are quite important for a peaceful stay in the U.S.A:  Original Form I-20.  Original Passport with valid F-1 Visa.  Original Form I-94 (Do not ever remove, it is stapled to your passport! This document is more important than the passport itself!).  Demand drafts, Travelers’ Checks, and currency.  Any sealed documents that the US Consulate gave you.  Other important documents, such as previous academic records.  Vaccination Certificate.  Letter of admission/financial aid. About facilities of communication Once you are in the US, the first thing you need to do is get a phone. Seniors will help you get to the nearest phone store and depending on the rates and plan you may choose a service of your liking. AT&T is popular in the east. But there are other service providers like the Sprint, Verizon and T mobile etc. Few offers like free instrument with specific period of service might be attractive. For India calling, there are a bunch of options like Dial91, IndiaLD, Raza, Reliance, etc. These can be availed through online payment and may be changed within a month if not satisfied. Next step would be to get a laptop. Desktop would be available at library of university. You may want to wait for better sales deal like labor day to buy your own. Also you can subscribe internet jointly with your roommate. About facilities of communication – It is observed that skype, yahoo, msn, gtalk like applications are the most economical voice communication mean if internet facility is available at either sides.Users can call any mobile in USA free of cost using Google talk. About insurance Most students are covered by the university insurance. However, if it is too expensive, you may want to opt for a cheaper one from US. www.isoa.org offers reasonable price for students with good coverage. It is discourage to come to US with an Indian Insurance, many Hospitals and doctors do not accept it!! Cooking & other skills Most of the students prepare their own food. Learn light cooking lessons from mom before flying (and other activities like washing clothes, ironing, cleaning house, etc). Like India, you will not find small food stalls around the corner in the US. If you are hungry, be ready to shell out a minimum of $5 – 10 $. If you are a vegetarian, cooking helps as vegetarian food is little hard to get outside. It is suggested to get all basic utensils like pressure cooker, pots, spoons of various sizes, knife, etc from India. You may want to decide & divide the utensils with your roommate. It is better to have a Pressure cooker, kadhai, vessel

Section – 3 - Structure of the U.S. Education System: International Affairs Office, U.S. Department of Education Feb 2008 http://www.ed.gov/international/usnei/edlite-index.html Bachelor’s Degrees The bachelor’s degree is the most common first degree in U.S. higher education and is the degree that gives access to advanced studies. U.S. bachelor’s degrees are usually planned to take 4 academic years of full-time study to complete. However, many degrees take longer to complete, including those in engineering, architecture and other fields; and many bachelor’s degrees are completed in less than 4 years by highly qualified and motivated students. Bachelor’s degrees may be awarded in academic or professional fields of study. Bachelor’s degree Description The bachelor’s degree may be defined as “An award that normally requires at least 4 but not more than 5 years of full-time equivalent college-level work. This includes all bachelor's degrees conferred in a 5- year cooperative (work-study) program. A cooperative plan provides for alternate class attendance and employment in business, industry, or government; thus, it allows students to combine actual work experience with their college studies. Also includes bachelor's degrees in which the normal 4 years of work are completed in 3 years.” (NCES) U.S. bachelor degree programs usually include requirements for breadth as well as depth of study, and students will fulfill what are called liberal or general studies requirements for introductory knowledge in several subjects as well as a concentration in one or more subjects, called a “major.” Students are assigned a faculty advisor, usually in the intended field of study, who assists the student in developing a plan of study that is coherent and uses the general education requirements to support the major. Many students become exempt from the general requirements through faculty examinations, presentation of Advanced Placement (AP) examination scores (3 or higher), or presentation of an International Baccalaureate (IB) or other advanced or honors secondary qualification. Some U.S. undergraduate students’ transcripts may show that remedial courses were completed, or examinations taken, in order to correct deficiencies or to complete prerequisites for certain subjects. It is important to know, however, that U.S. accreditation rules do not allow remedial work to be awarded undergraduate credit. Inter- or multi-disciplinarity is a major thrust of U.S. higher education, and it begins with the first degree level. U.S. educators and employers believe strongly that the bachelor’s degree should prepare students for entry-level jobs as well as for possible advanced study. Whether students continue their studies or enter the labor market, they will need to understand the basic principles of fields other than their own
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 57 narrow specialization, and they will need skills – such as languages, IT and computational skills – that cannot be obtained exclusively in their major field. This extra knowledge and skill must be obtained at the higher education level. Secondary-level preparation cannot substitute for it. And the degree program should be structured so that the additional knowledge and skill complements the main subject concentration. Most bachelor’s degrees are titled Bachelor of Arts (BA or AB) or Bachelor of Science (BS or SB), but there are many other bachelor’s degree titles in use. HONORS BACHELOR’S DEGREES Honors bachelor’s degrees are awarded and involve more independent study, require a thesis or special project, and may have special admissions requirements. The designation, admission and content standards for honors degrees are set by the awarding institution. Honors degrees are usually designated on the degree transcript and sometimes on the degree diploma, and the title of the honors thesis or project will often be provided. Liberal Arts and General Education AACU Description of Liberal Arts Education provides information on the concept of liberal education and explanations of the various terms used to refer to this model of undergraduate education. AACU Description of General Education provides information on the concept of general education and links to various resources. Content and Quality in Undergraduate Education Project on Accreditation and Assessment provides an analysis of quality assurance factors related to liberal arts programs at the bachelor’s degree level. AIS Guidelines for Interdisciplinary General Education is the Association for Integrative Studies’ recommendations for quality assessment of general education programs. State Student Learning Assessment Database is a linked directory of information on state policies and procedures for assessing undergraduate learning. Credit Production and Progress Toward the Bachelor's Degree examines the content of bachelor’s degree programs and progress toward the degree using national data sources. Remedial (Non-Credit) Education Remedial Education at Degree-Granting Postsecondary Institutions provides the most recent available data on the extent and nature of remedial education services, who offers such services, and institutional policies regarding remedial education. Bachelor’s Degree Productivity and Outcomes Beginning Postsecondary Students (BPS) Survey is a national longitudinal study of a cohort of 9,000 students enrolled in 800 higher education institutions that examined their educational experiences and attainment. Baccalaureate and Beyond (BB) Survey is a longitudinal study of national cohorts of bachelor degree recipients (1993, 1997, and 2003) that examines their graduate study and work experiences after earning a first (bachelor’s) degree. POST-BACHELOR’S CERTIFICATES
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 58 A number of U.S. higher education institutions offer programs that permit a student to earn a specialized certificate (it can also be called a diploma) at the same time the bachelor’s degree is earned or shortly thereafter. These certificates may indicate the mastery of knowledge and skills, such as foreign languages or computer software, or the completion of additional requirements permitting access to professional licensure procedures, as in teacher training, accounting, and other fields. Post- bachelor’s certificates usually require no more than a single academic year to complete, and are often completed as part of the degree program. They do not constitute a separate degree level and are not degrees. The B.L.S. degree is frequently awarded to graduates of programs in divisions of continuing or adult education, as well as to students who complete structured and supervised independent studies programs. Despite the title, the content of this degree often corresponds to regular B.A. or B.S. programs in academic or professional fields. Will like to Quote email from one of the famous universities of USA, dated 5th Jan 2012, which will give clear idea about documents required, fee requirements and likely scholarships during graduation program. In most cases, we will take classes with a grade of C or better from ACCREDITED universities as transfer credit. The individual department will be responsible for determining accreditation, evaluating credits, and assigning an appropriate year level to a student. I am unable to speculate his admissibility to our school will be without a transcript or completed application. Please send us the following as soon as possible so we can begin the application review process: -Application (available online or you can print out this PDF on this link and fill this out: http://www.rit.edu/emcs/admissions/pdf/international_application.pdf) -$50 application fee -Personal statement or essay -Official transcripts from all high schools/universities attended with official translations -TOEFL or IELTS score report -Financial documentation (letter of sponsorship and bank statement). International scholarships will be awarded to highly qualified freshman and transfer applicants. All applicants are considered for merit scholarships, which typically range from $6,000 to $15,000 per academic year and are renewable with a 2.5 or higher RIT grade point average. Freshman international applicants are encouraged to submit SAT or ACT results. Scholarship awards are only offered upon admission to RIT. RIT also offers limited need-based scholarships for international undergraduate students. To apply, students must demonstrate financial resources of at least $42,450 USD and complete the College Board International Student Financial Aid Application: http://www.rit.edu/emcs/admissions/pdf/1011%20Intl%20Student%20Fin%20Aid%20Application.pdf.

Who are undergraduate students versus graduate students? What's the FAFSA? Studying in the United States can be confusing if you don't fully understand the words used in U.S. higher education. With that in mind, U.S. News has compiled a glossary of important terms specifically for international students and parents. While this list is not exhaustive, it offers a key starting point as you explore the best U.S. universities for you. We want to hear from you! What words are missing from this glossary? Comment below or send us an E-mail with your thoughts and suggestions. A Academic adviser: A member of a school's faculty who provides advice and guidance to students on academic matters, such as course selections. Academic year: Annual period during which a student attends and receives formal instruction at a college or university, typically from August or September to May or June. The academic year may be divided into semesters, trimesters, quarters, or other calendars. Accredited: Official recognition that a college or university meets the standards of a regional or national association. Although international students are not required to attend an accredited college or university in the United States, employers, other schools, and governments worldwide often only recognize degrees from accredited schools. ACT (American College Test): A standardized college entrance exam administered by the American College Testing Program. Four separate, multiple-choice tests measure knowledge of English, math, reading, and science, and one optional writing test measures essay planning and writing skills. Most students take the ACT during their junior or senior year of high school, and most colleges and universities accept scores from either the ACT or SAT. Some schools may recommend, but not require, international students to take the ACT or SAT. (See the U.S. News college test prep guide for more information.) Affidavit of Support: An official document proving adequate funding from an individual or organization to cover an international student's educational and living expenses while enrolled at a U.S. college or university.

Commencement: A graduation ceremony where students officially receive their degrees, typically held in May or June at the end of the academic year, though some colleges and universities also hold August and December ceremonies. Common Application: A standard application form that is accepted by more than 450 member colleges and universities for admissions. Students can complete the form online or in print and submit copies to any of the participating colleges, rather than filling out individual forms for each school. However, international students will typically need to submit additional application materials unique to each college. Community college: A public, two-year postsecondary institution that offers the associate degree. Also known as a "junior college." Community colleges typically provide a transfer program, allowing students to transfer to a four-year school to complete their bachelor's degree, and a career program, which provides students with a vocational degree. Conditional admission: An acceptance to a college or university that is dependent on the student first completing coursework or meeting specific criteria before enrollment. For an international student, this can include a requirement to attain a certain level of English-language proficiency if the student's TOEFL score doesn't meet the minimum required. Core requirements: Mandatory courses that students are required to complete to earn a degree.

Most community colleges have an open admissions policy, including for international students. Orientation: A college or university's official process of welcoming new, accepted students to campus and providing them with information and policies before classes begin, usually in a half-day or full-day event. Many colleges and graduate schools offer a separate orientation just for international students to cover topics such as how to follow immigration and visa regulations, set up a U.S. bank account, and handle culture shock. P Part-time student: A student who is enrolled at a college or university but is not taking the minimum number of credits required for a full course load. Pass-fail: A grading system in which students receive either a "pass" or "fail" grade, rather than a specific score or letter grade.

Resident assistant (RA): A student leader who works in campus dormitories and supervises issues and activities related to dorm life. RAs often receive free housing in the dorm in return for their services. Rolling admissions: An admissions process used by some colleges and universities in which each application is considered as soon as all the required materials have been received, rather than by a specific deadline.

A student must pay a SEVIS fee and use the payment receipt and I-20 to apply for a visa. Social Security number: A nine-digit number issued by the U.S. government to people who are authorized to work in the United States and collect certain government benefits.

Working on campus is something every student should give serious consideration. There are special advantages of working on campus. Here are a few: 1. A school-friendly schedule: No one understands the demands on a college student quite like campus employers. They're also familiar with the college schedule, including breaks and finals, and tend to work around those if possible. 2. A financial solution: A campus job can sometimes be part of a student's financial package, in the form of a work-study job. Filling out the FAFSA will help student know if he or she is eligible for this kind of aid. 3. Caring adults: College is a time of transition. Most students aren't children anymore, but they aren't quite adults, either—at least when they first arrive at school. A campus job ensures that your child will regularly come into contact with adults who generally have his or her best interest in mind. 4. Great references: Those caring adults mentioned above can also be the source of some great references for future employment or graduate school. If your student works to secure a job in his or her field of study, those references will be even more valuable. Few ways to make your campus job search more successful:
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 76 1. Cast a wide net: You can apply for 10 campus jobs at the beginning of the year, get interviews, and only one ended up working out. If you're really interested in a campus job, don't be too picky about which one it is; most of them are relatively similar. 2. Follow up: Supervisors for campus jobs differ from supervisors at other jobs, because they often double as lecturers, researchers, authors, and more. Hiring a student assistant is not always at the top of their to-do lists, so keeping in touch with them may be what sets you apart from the rest of the applicants. 3. Be professional: It may sound like common sense to be professional in a job interview, but I have seen too many of my peers go to interviews underdressed or acting too informal. A campus job interview is still an interview, so treat it like one. Shake the person's hand, show up five minutes early, and never wear jeans. These are some of the easiest ways to show the employer that you are serious about the position. 6 Ways College Students Can Find Summer Jobs Finding a job in this economy is difficult for anyone, but some evidence suggests teens are among the hardest hit. If a summer job for yourself or your college student is on your to-do list, consider these ideas to help make it happen. Students are now talking about summer jobs. There's a lot of anxiety about their availability. Most students want and need a summer job as a way to finance their education. But finding a job isn't as easy as just wanting one. Here are some suggestions of places to start: 1. Contact past employers: Assuming the student has been a good worker in the past, it makes sense to get in touch with those who know this. Even if the job held prior isn't available, some employers will find a position for the right worker. 2. Check university job boards: We've blogged before about how a part-time job at school has some great advantages for students, and there may be summer positions available if the student is free to stay after the semester wraps up. 3. Create a job: I've known several students who have run lucrative summer lawn care businesses. I've known others who have organized informal summer camps for kids. An enterprising student may have better results creating a job than finding one, and the experience can be valuable as well. Right about this time of year, this question begins to circulate among my friends: "What are you doing this summer?" Answers include studying abroad, vacations, and summer classes, but most of my friends will be working full- or part-time jobs. The lucky ones are returning to a job from last summer, but the rest are left to spend the next several months on the job hunt. Here are some additional strategies to make that search a little easier: 1. Consider a new market: If you're someone who normally goes home for the summer vacation, consider looking for jobs in your college town, which may be relatively deserted over the summer. Conversely, don't rule out potential jobs in your hometown, even if you're used to staying at school for the summer.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 77 2. Use family and friends: Working for a relative or family friend may not be your ideal summer job. If you're struggling to find a job, however, those connections can be a fairly secure option in case something else doesn't come along. 3. Combine multiple positions: If you can't find that one full-time position, try taking more than one part-time job to meet your financial needs. This is especially helpful if your employer ends up needing you for fewer hours than you expected. By taking on an extra job, you can maximize your time over the summer to still make the amount of money you want. An International Student's Guide to U.S. Scholarships http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/the-scholarship-coach/2012/03/22/an-international- students-guide-to-us-scholarships The idea of the "American Dream" means many things to many people, but one of its most common— and important—elements is the ability to further one's self by getting a college education. And for students born outside the United States, scholarships can be an invaluable help toward achieving that dream. Whether you're a new immigrant, a student going on to graduate school, or a learner returning to college, there's international scholarship assistance out there for your studies in the United States. Before you do any scholarship searching, it's important to know that you should never have to pay to find or apply for scholarships. If a scholarship search engine or application asks you for a credit card or other financial information before you can use it, stay away. Reputable scholarships never charge to apply, and there are plenty of excellent free search engines. (Scholarship Experts, in particular, features a search specific to international students.) One of your best sources of financial aid will be the college you attend. If you were born outside the United States but are now a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, start by looking at colleges within the state where you live. Generally speaking, state residents pay a much lower tuition rate than out-of-state residents. For example, a year of tuition and fees at the University of Virginia costs around $12,000 for students who live in Virginia, and around $36,000 for those who don't. Establishing residency in a state can instantly cut a great deal off of your ultimate college price tag. If you don't live in the United States, you can do some very thorough research on colleges and financial aid opportunities at EducationUSA. This service of the U.S. Department of State and the Institute of International Education provides a ton of online information; there is also a frequently updated list of financial aid opportunities and, most usefully, a guide to advising centers in countries around the world, where you can meet face-to-face with experts in your country that can help you search schools, translate information, and learn about your options. You should also take a look at ForeignBorn.com for useful information on applying to schools, obtaining a student visa, and more. No matter where you live, or decide to go to school, your college's financial aid office (and its website) should be your next stop. Most colleges have scholarship programs specifically for international
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 78 students attending their institutions. To use just one example, the University of Oregon awards more than $1 million each year to students born outside the United States. You'll notice on that page that some of this funding is for students from specific countries, some is open to students worldwide, and some requires that you study a certain field or do specific customer service—it can be confusing, but college admissions officers and financial aid experts are there to help you find as much money as you qualify for. These resources will go a long way in helping with your education in the United States, no matter where you're from; you can also seek out opportunities specific to your country or even your gender. If you're a native of a Latin American or Caribbean nation, check out the listing of scholarships provided by the Organization of American States's Leo. S. Rowe Pan American Fund. The fund exists to provide interest- free student loans to students, and this brochure also features a useful listing of scholarship opportunities sorted by your country of residence. If you live in one of the 17 countries (across four continents) where the Aga Khan Foundation has a presence, and you're doing graduate or postgraduate work, don't miss out on the Foundation's International Scholarship Programme, though note that awards made through this program are 50 percent scholarship and 50 percent loan, so you will have to pay part of the award back over time. And, finally, if you're a female graduate student and a non-U.S. resident, the venerable AAUW International Fellowship provides a tremendous opportunity; in 2011, the fellowship program awarded nearly $1 million to women dedicated to improving life in their home countries. This highly competitive program usually opens in August for the next academic year, so keep it in mind if you're an exemplary grad or postgrad student. 10 Colleges That Give the Most International Student Financial Aid These elite institutions may help admitted students from abroad with funding. The U.S. News Short List, separate from our overall rankings, is a regular series that magnifies individual data points in hopes of providing students and parents a way to find which undergraduate or graduate programs excel or have room to grow in specific areas. Be sure to explore The Short List: College and The Short List: Grad School to find data that matters to you in your college or grad school search. Good news for international students interested in top-ranked U.S. colleges: There may be financial aid for you. Studying in the United States can be quite expensive for international students, who aren't eligible for federal financial aid programs and who may be charged additional fees for special services and programming. But many colleges do offer some sort of aid to help students from overseas pay for college. In an annual U.S. News & World Report survey, 806 colleges reported offering financial aid to at least one international student for the 2011-2012 school year. Of those institutions, 350 reported offering financial aid to 50 or more students from abroad—making the schools eligible for the top 10 list below. Each school on this list is a private institution, and most are located in the Northeast quadrant of the United States. Many are very highly ranked, representing the upper echelons of both the Best National
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 79 Universities and Best National Liberal Arts Colleges rankings lists. (Unranked colleges, which did not submit enough data for U.S. News to calculate numerical rankings, were not considered for this list.) Keep in mind that these elite institutions have stringent admissions standards. Students first have to be accepted to a U.S. university to be offered financial aid, and the totals below are averages of what international students received. Not every student at Yale University, for instance, received $53,255; rather, that was the average package among all international students who received aid. These are the 10 schools that awarded the highest average financial aid awards to their international students for the school year: Don't see your school in the top 10? Access the U.S. News College Compass to find additional data on international student enrollment and financial aid, complete rankings, and much more. The Best Colleges and Universities http://www.internationalstudent.com/schools_awarding_aid/ US Schools That Offer Need-Blind and Full-Need Admission to International Students - under a need- blind admissions policy, a college or university will admit students regardless of their ability to pay, and for any students that cannot afford the price tag, full-need means the university awards scholarships and other institutional aid to make up the difference. There are now six US schools that offer need-blind and full-need admissions to international students - Amherst College is the most recent to join this elite group. Basically, if you can get in, you can afford to go - they are:  MIT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Massachusetts  Harvard University in Massachusetts  Princeton University in New Jersey  Yale University in Connecticut  Dartmouth College in New Hampshire  Amherst College in Massachusetts If you would like to learn more about these schools InternationalStudent.com offers a free school search that will allow you to find out more information about the school. The school directory will allow you to search by state, you can then locate your school - from there you will be given the main school website and related department websites. 5 Scholarships for In-Demand College Majors There are several scholarships available for students who plan on majoring in finance or STEM subjects. Selecting a college major can be one of the easiest – or most difficult – decisions a person can make in their lifetime. Some of you have known you've wanted to become a veterinarian since the day you brought home your fifth grade classroom's pet hamster. For others, choosing between economics or nursing will be a decision you grapple with even after you force yourself to decide at the end of your sophomore year of college.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 80 If you're completely undecided and need a push in a certain direction, you may want to see if your interests align with one of these hot, high-paying majors, and then check out the corresponding scholarships. Take note that those interested in a career in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) will have a leg up on everyone else. 1. Engineering: By far the hottest major out there right now is engineering of practically any sort. From petroleum to electrical to aerospace engineering, there is a huge demand for all kinds of engineers – and that's reflected in the average starting salary of $51,700 to $97,900, according to the online salary database PayScale. Unfortunately, your first paycheck four years from now can't go toward your tuition payment today, so we suggest you turn to scholarships for help. The SMART Scholarship (Science, Mathematics & Research for Transformation), established by the Department of Defense, offers a huge incentive for engineering and math majors studying in the U.S. by covering full tuition and education-related fees, offering paid summer internships, a health insurance reimbursement, mentoring and more. The catch is that you have to be willing to work for the Department of Defense after graduation. 2. Computer science: Many of you have likely heard of the huge array of perks that working for a Silicon Valley company can bring. From free gyms, haircuts and massages to game rooms and swimming pools, companies like Google know how to keep employees in the office. With an average starting salary of more than $55,000, according to PayScale, the pay isn't too shabby, either. However, we don't recommend that you become a computer science major for the slim possibility that you could end up working for Google. But if you're interested in building the next great iPhone app and like the look of that starting salary, a career in computer science may be perfect for you – especially because the chances of finding a well- paying job after graduation look good. Those considering majoring in computer science should think about applying for the Wayne V. Black Memorial Scholarship, a $5,000 award from the Energy Telecommunications and Electrical Association. 3. Finance: When you got your first allowance money or your first paycheck as a fast food employee, did you immediately start figuring out what to spend, what to save and how to invest it? Maybe you weren't playing the stock market, but if you've always loved balancing your checkbook, a career in finance could be right up your alley. You'll also have plenty of money to play with outside of work, since finance careers are generally lucrative. If you're interested in government finance, check out the scholarships offered by the Government Finance Officers Association. Scholarships range from a $10,000 scholarship studying government finance at the graduate level to scholarships for minority students studying governmental finance or other related fields. 4. Applied and general mathematics: If you've always loved crunching numbers, you may want to consider a career in mathematics or statistics, especially because the career outlook for recent math
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 81 major grads is fantastic, and the average starting salary at around $50,000, per PayScale, isn't half bad either. But if your calculations for how you're going to afford college just aren't adding up, we suggest you look for math-related scholarships to offset the cost. And if you're a woman, we suggest you look first at the Association for Women in Mathematics' Alice T. Shafer Prize for Excellence in Mathematics, open to undergraduate women interested in math. The 2014 Schafer Prize will be awarded at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore in January 2014. 5. Economics: Finally, a high-paying major for those of us who loathe math and science! Well, that's not exactly true. Econ majors will have to endure math and statistics classes, and the highest-paying jobs do fall in the banking and finance fields. But you can also use a degree in economics to establish a career in law, consulting or government and nonprofit work. To find scholarships for economics majors, we suggest you check with your college or university's financial aid office. Most will offer scholarships for those studying economics. For example, the University of South Dakota offers eight scholarships that are available to econ majors, and Boise State University has five economics scholarships. Compare 5 Top Scholarship Search Engines http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/the-scholarship-coach/2011/01/20/compare-5-top- scholarship-search-engines There are so many free scholarship search engines available to students online—you'll get about 7 million results by Googling "scholarship search"—that it can be difficult to know which websites to use. It's a good idea to set up profiles on multiple sites so you catch as many opportunities as possible. Which sites you choose is up to you, but in case you need some help with your decision making, I've looked at three key elements of several free search engines: how often their data is updated, whether they keep your information private, and what's unique about each of them. 1. CollegeBoard.com: The College Board was founded in 1900 and currently helps 7 million students annually prepare for higher education. The College Board began publishing their book of scholarships in 1997 and since then has made the information available online. Their scholarship database contains more than 2,300 scholarship opportunities, totaling nearly $3 billion. Timely? Yes. Staff perform a mass update of all scholarships annually; changes, corrections, additions, and deletions are also handled monthly. Private? Absolutely. College Board only uses your information to help you and to improve its services. They do not rent or sell your information. Period. Unique? Yes, for a couple reasons. College Board's database and printed handbook are broadly relevant—you won't find scholarships here that are intended for use at just one institution. And because of The College Board's role as the organization behind the SAT, AP exams, etc., they have rigorous standards for the scholarships they include in their database, including only those scholarships with a documented history from a well-established sponsor.

CollegeNet.com: CollegeNET is a technology company that builds web-based tools for event and academic scheduling, prospect and admissions management, tuition processing, and alumni development for colleges and universities. CollegeNET also operates a scholarship search engine and social network where students create topics, participate in discussions, and vote on scholarship winners. Timely? Yes. CollegeNET.com updates its data monthly through its license agreement with data aggregator Wintergreen Orchard House. Private? Yes. CollegeNET.com's privacy policy states, "We do not rent or sell personal information to third parties." However, if you are awarded a scholarship, you can opt in to their Scholarship Election System and share your data with the school that you designate. Unique? Yes. In addition to the scholarship search, CollegeNET.com hosts an online community that invites students to create topics in an open forum, share their comments, and vote online to determine who is leading the most interesting conversation. By the end of the voting cycle every Wednesday, the student with the most votes wins between $3,000-$5,000 in scholarship money. This social networking scholarship is open to all students and is not based on traditional factors like GPA, age, or income level; you are not required to write essays, and the scholarship process is voted upon by your peers, rather than a panel of judges.

Fastweb: Fastweb, which has helped 50 million students find money since the site was founded 15 years ago, was the first online scholarship matching service and the first free national scholarship matching service. Fastweb's site indicates they currently have roughly 1.5 million scholarships worth $3.4 billion in their database. Timely? Definitely. According to Fastweb, they update their database daily—which would make them the timeliest of the five mentioned in this post. To assist in their process, Fastweb expires scholarships from their database after 11 months, forcing them to update the information before it can be relisted. Private? Yes, unless you expressly agree (opt in) to allow your information to be shared with third parties. Fastweb's privacy policy states that they do not share any information that can be tied to you without your permission. Unique? Sure. Fastweb compiles their scholarship data in-house, and when new scholarships are added they send an E-mail notification to every student who matches the award.

Scholarships.com: Founded in 1999, Scholarships.com now claims to be the largest free and independent scholarship search and financial aid information resource on the Internet, with more than 2.7 million scholarships worth a total of $19 billion in their database. Timely? Yes. Vice President Kevin Ladd says their database is updated daily. "We encourage scholarship providers to not only submit their scholarship to be included in our database, but also to update them."
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 83 They also have a staff to review new and edited listings, and "every few months or so" they review all scholarships for changes, errors, or inconsistencies. Private? You bet. Users supply only the information they choose and are offered opportunities to opt out of receiving anything they don't want—even at the time of registration. (See Scholarships.com's privacy policy.) Unique? Maybe. Ladd and the folks at Scholarships.com feel their database and user experience is superior to all others out there and that their resources and the effort they put into making sure the information they have is useful is unmatched. 5. ScholarshipMonkey.com: ScholarshipMonkey.com claims their database provides students access to more than 1 million undergraduate, graduate, and professional scholarship awards worth in excess of $3 billion from greater than 4,000 sources. Like the other search engines in this article, they are committed to providing their service free of charge. Timely? Perhaps. ScholarshipMonkey.com states that "the scholarship database is continuously updated by the company's Scholarship Team to ensure you are receiving the most relevant and useful information." Unlike the other search engine sites, ScholarshipMonkey.com did not provide specific timing for their updates. Private? No, unless you opt out from receiving information from third parties via E-mail or snail mail. Unique? Your scholarship search will be led by a talking monkey (er, chimp). 'Nuff said. Overseas Scholarships USIEF offers a wide range of exchange opportunities to Indian citizens in three main categories:  Student Awards to pursue a master's degree or attend a US university as a visiting student researcher,  Scholars and Teacher Awards for academics, teachers and professionals to teach or conduct research in the US, and  Professional Development Programs for leadership and skill development. Some have good GRE scores, some have good Acads, Some have good leadership skills, some have good goals stated in Essays, etc. The point is, not everyone are perfect and scholarship committee looks at your scholarship application for MS or MBA as a whole and comes to a decision. As always, the scholarship you are applying to defines what they are looking for. You will have to read the requirements and what they need and present yourself accordingly. The whole idea is there are different deadlines for both. You have to clearly look for Financial aid vs Admission deadlines. For instance, look at General Fall deadlines for University of Houston Clearlake Scholarship Deadline, it is April 1 (http://prtl.uhcl.edu/portal/page/portal/FAO/Scholarships/Dollars_for_Scholars) But, the International Admission deadline is June 1.If you see, the scholarship deadline is like at least 2 months ahead of time. (http://prtl.uhcl.edu/portal/page/portal/ADM/Future_students/InternationalStudentsApplicationDeadli nes)
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 84 Key thing is you have to send your stuff before the scholarship deadline to be considered for the scholarship.

Which banks in India provide Educational Loan?- SBI, Bank of Maharashtra, IDBI, Allahabad Bank, OBC, UBI, Bank of Baroda are some of the banks that provide educational loan. What are the interest rates?- Interest Rate of various banks differs. Which documents have to be furnished to avail the loan?  Completely filled Application Form with Photographs.  Letter of admission from the Institute.  Letter from the Institute stating expenses of the program (term-wise, year-wise)  Documents for the Applicant & Co-applicant (Residence Proof , ID Proof , Signature Verification Proof , Age proof )
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 88  Mark sheets from SSC onwards till the latest examination passed.  Income Documents of the Co-applicant ( Pay Slips / ITR copy etc )  Visa approval papers  Travel documents  GRE/GMAT/SAT score  I-20 in case of applicant going to the USA  Declaration/Affidavit confirming that no loan has been availed from other Bank/Institution What are the criteria for a good Educational loan?  Lowest Interest Rate  No prepayment penalty  Minimum or no collateral required  Flexible repayment options  Student Loan deferment options Indian banks allow you to repay within 5-7 years after the commencement of repayment. Repayment will commence one year after completion of course or 6 months after securing a job, whichever is earlier. Repayment of an international student loan can be deferred while you are enrolled full-time, and for six months after you finish. After that, you will have up to 20 years to repay the loan, with a payment due every month. Overseas Loans Education loans aren't one size fits all. You should consider the following things while evaluating the best loan option for yourself: Interest Rate: Some banks offer fixed rate and some offer variable rate option. A fixed rate stays the same for the life of the loan, while variable rates change quarterly, and may go up or down. Be sure to compare different options. Pay attention to the terms : The interest rate of your Study Abroad loan may vary depending on whether you repay the loan immediately or wait until after graduation to start repaying. Having a co-borrower can also have an impact on the rate of a loan. Check the Hidden Costs : The hidden costs for borrowing loan can have a big impact on your overall cost of borrowing. Examine carefully terms like Application Fee, Origination Fee, and Default Fee. Prepayment Penalty : Is there any penalty for early repayment? What's the penalty for a missed or late payment? Get the proper advice and support you need : Choose the right loan option as per your financial situation. Learn about the impact of deferring repayment and choosing a long repayment term. Putting off payments and having smaller monthly payments might increase your total cost of borrowing. International versus Indian Banks : US students can receive federal loans guaranteed by the government, but these valuable loans are not available to international students. Luckily, private student loans are available to international students. The loans are cheaper compared to those available in India if an international student is fortunate to get the loan. The interest rate is around 4-6% compared to around 12 % in India.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 89 International Student Loans : U.S Banks offer students loan to international students if the loan is co- signed by a creditworthy US citizen or permanent resident (holder of a "green card"). International students may choose from the following international student loan option: Global Student Loan Corporation: GSLC offers student loans for International students that do not require a co-signer in the host country. You do not require a U.S. cosigner if you plan to study in U.S. In addition to covering your tuition, the Global Student Loan provides funding for other school essentials such as computers, insurance, communications, travel, and housing. Federal student loans are popular with US students in the USA, but they are not available to international students. International Student Loans are specialized private education loans that are available for international students who are studying in the USA. International students will have to apply with a qualified co-signer and should only apply for international student loans after exhausting all scholarships, personal funds and other options.

International Student Loans As the number of international students studying in the USA continues to increase, the need for international financial aid is constantly growing. To address this need, we provide access to loans for non-US Citizens from anywhere in the world who are planning to study at approved schools throughout the USA. We have been a leader in providing loans for international students since 1998, and thousands of international students have applied for loans through our programs. Over the past two years, the credit crunch and legislation has changed the student loan landscape dramatically, and the options available to international students have been reduced. However, there are still loans available for international students, and International Student Loan makes sure to bring the best available loans on the market to international students. Click on the Apply Now button to start your application. Co-Signer Required for All Applicants The Co-Signer must be a US citizen or permanent resident, with good credit, income history and who has lived in the USA for the past 2 years.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 90 Typically students can borrow up to their school's total cost of attendance, as determined by the school, minus any other aid received. Total cost of attendance includes room and board and other living expenses. International students are required to have a US Citizen or permanent resident as a co-signer to apply for this loan. International student loans typically also offer:  No collateral required  Flexible repayment terms  Online application  and much more..... International Student Loan is pleased to bring you the first loan comparison tool for international students. We understand that studying in the United States may require you to secure additional financial aid to make that dream possible. That's why we have developed a private loan comparison tool of all lenders that provide loans to international students. We have made the loan process easy, quick and simple, comparing those lenders that will help secure your education to the United States. Private International Student Loans Many international students studying in the United States will find that expenses can add up! With tuition, books, transportation, and living expenses, many international students may soon realize that they cannot financial support their educational studies entirely on their own. However, don't let this deter your dream of getting an education in the United States. That's where private student loans come in! Private student loans are available to international students to help cover these costs while studying in the US. Eligibility Requirements All international students must have a US co-signer in order to apply for a student loan. A co-signer is legally obligated to repay the loan if the borrower fails to pay. Often times, the cosigner is a close friend or relative that can assist in getting credit since most international students cannot receive credit on their own. That co-signer must be a US citizen or permanent resident, with good credit, who has lived in the US for the past two years. Application Process You can begin the loan application simply by doing a loan comparison that will allow you to choose the lender best suited for you. To make the process go as quickly as possible, you and your co-signer will need to complete the entire online application thoroughly. Initial credit approval or denial is very quick and typically takes 2-6 weeks from initial approval. Interest Rate Explained When you take out a loan through a lender, you will be responsible for paying back the amount of money you borrowed (called the principal) plus an additional amount charged by the lender for the loan (called interest). The interest rate is calculated based on an index plus a margin that will add an additional percentage interest rate depending on your cosigner's creditworthiness. The two most common indexes used for international student loans are the Prime Rate and LIBOR Rate:
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 91  Prime Interest Rate - This index is determined by the federal funds rate which is set by the US Federal Reserve. This is the rate in which banks lend to one another and in many cases the interest rate which commercial banks charge their most creditworthy clients.  LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) - Like the Prime Rate, the LIBOR is the interest rate that banks borrow from other banks. This rate is based on the British Bankers' Association and used on the London interbank market. The rate is an average of the world's most creditworthy bank's interbank deposit rates for overnight and one year terms. When evaluating the loan, the lender will clarify which index the plan uses. Then, there will be an additional margin that will be added to this index based on the borrower's individual criteria, including the co-signer's credit history. Based on their creditworthiness, an additional interest rate will be added to the index which will be the total interest rate you owe. This will appear on your final loan paperwork as Libor + 2.8%. The application is free, and when your application is approved, your specific margin will be disclosed to you. At that point you can accept or refuse the loan. Currently the rates are anywhere between 2.25% APR and 9.11% APR. Loan Repayment Repayment will depend on the loan option you choose. Many international students must consider this as an important feature of their loan since most students cannot work while they study in the United States. Because of this, it is important to consider how much the monthly payments will be, when payments will begin, and how long students may be able to defer paying back the loan. The repayment period typically ranges from 10-25 years, however the larger the loan the longer the loan repayment period. There are standard repayment plan options depending on the loan you select:  Full Deferral - Students are able to defer payment of the interest and principal until 6 months after graduation as long as full-time status is maintained. Students can defer payments for a maximum of 4 years consecutively which is the typical length of a degree seeking student  Interest Only - International students only pay the interest while in school, up to 4 consecutive years, and can defer the principal until 45 days after graduation or when students drop their course load to part-time.  Immediate Repayment - Payments on both interest and principal are due immediately once the loan has been issued and dispersed.

International student loans, like all private education loans, can be used for education-related expenses including such things as tuition, books, fees, insurance, transportation, room and board and other school-related expenses. What is the maximum loan amount that I can apply for? You can apply for up to the total cost of education, minus other aid, as determined by your school. To determine your maximum loan amount, or what can be included in your loan, you will need to contact your school's financial aid office. After you apply and receive credit approval for you and your co-signer, your school must certify the amount of the loan. I'm a non-US citizen nor a US-permanent resident studying in a destination outside the US, am I eligible for a loan? Unfortunately, our loan programs are for international students from anywhere in the world studying in the United States, or for US students studying abroad. We do not currently have a program for international students studying elsewhere in the world, even with a US co-signer. What if no lenders appear on my comparison tool? Unfortunately if there are no lenders that appear after you do the comparison tool, then we do not have a loan program for the school. Our best advice is to contact your school, as they should know if there are any loan programs available to their international students. When I take out a student loan, how much do I pay back and when? The interest rate and repayment will depend on the loan option and lender you select. After you select the loan that works best for you, you will need to review the terms or contact the lender directly with your questions. The interest rate is calculated based on an index plus a margin that will add an additional percentage interest rate depending on your cosigner's creditworthiness. Based on their creditworthiness, an additional interest rate will be added to the index which will be the total interest rate you owe and at that point you can determine whether you'd like to proceed. Every lender's range varies so it is important to do the loan comparison and review the interest rate and repayment terms. What if I do not have a co-signer? What if my co-signer is a non-US citizen? Or, how can I find a co- signer? Unfortunately a co-signer is required for all international student loan programs. The co-signer must be a US citizen or US permanent resident, with good credit, who has lived in the US for the past two years. Non-US citizens or non-US permanent residents cannot act as a cosigner. Although we are not able to assist with finding a co-signer, it is common to ask close friends or family members. Can I apply for an international student loan before being accepted to my school?
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 93 While you can begin the loan application prior to being accepted to your school, you will need to be accepted with your student visa to finalize the loan. What if I need to show proof of funds before I obtain a visa? Can I show this loan as satisfying this requirement? Some students are able to use loan approval as proof of funds, but it's not easy and it's up to the school and consular officer if they'll accept a loan approval as proper funds. You would need to apply for the loan now, list the school you plan to attend, get initially approved based on the credit of your co-signer, then use that initial approval to complete your acceptance to the school. I need proof of funds before I can enroll, can I use loans? Typically you need to be admitted and enrolled, and have your visa, in order to apply. Some students are able to use loan approval as proof of funds, but its not easy and its up to the school and consular officer if they'll accept a loan approval as proper funds.

We recommend contacting your school directly as they may know if there are any loan programs available to their international students. Are there application deadlines? No. You may apply for an International Student Loan at any time. If I obtained a loan last year, can I get another loan again this year? Yes. You can reapply each academic term for a loan.

Graduate School Stafford Loan FAQs 1. Who can get Stafford loans? 2. How much can I borrow from the Stafford program? 3. How much do Stafford loans cost? 4. How do I get a Stafford loan? 5. What if I have bad credit? 6. What if I need more money than the Stafford maximums? 7. How is the credit crunch affecting Stafford loans? 8. Are Stafford loan payments tax deductible? 9. When do I have to start repaying my Stafford loan? 10. What are the advantages of a Stafford loan? 11. What happens if I lose my job or get into other financial trouble? 12. What are the downsides of federal loans? Who can get Stafford loans? Graduate school students who are U.S. citizens, legal permanent residents, or eligible non-citizens who have been accepted at a U.S. school can get unsubsidized Stafford loans. Students cannot have defaulted on other federal student loans in the past and must attend school at least half time to qualify.
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 95 How much can I borrow from the Stafford program? Graduate students can borrow up to $20,500 a year in Stafford loans, and up to $138,500 total for their studies (including any Stafford loans taken out during college). Students in certain health fields have higher maximums, and can borrow up to $47,167 a year and up to $224,000 in total through the Stafford program. How much do Stafford loans cost? Staffords charge a fixed rate of 6.8 percent, plus up-front fees of 1 percent of the amount borrowed. Those rates may increase due to a series of federal budget cuts known as sequestration, which went into effect on March 1, 2013. When the rates will rise, and by how much, have yet to be determined. All Stafford loans for graduate students are unsubsidized, meaning interest will accumulate on the loans while students are in school. How do I get a Stafford loan? You must fill out a FAFSA. For unsubsidized Stafford loans, students do not need to demonstrate financial need. Does every grad student get approved for a Stafford loan? No. Students who are not eligible for the program, who have defaulted on other college loans, or who are attending school only part time do not qualify. What if I have bad credit? You can get a Stafford loan if you've defaulted on a mortgage, car, credit card, or medical bills. The federal government does not do a regular credit check for Stafford loans. It only rejects applicants who have defaulted on other federal education loans. What if I need more money than the Stafford maximums? You can borrow up to your full cost of attendance from the federal Graduate PLUS program. But those have higher fees and interest and are not awarded to students with bad credit. How is the credit crunch affecting Stafford loans? Stafford loans are funded and made entirely by the federal government. So they remain available to all qualified students. Are Stafford loan payments tax deductible? It depends on your income when you start repaying. Generally, for a single person, education loan interest is not deductible if your adjusted gross income is more than $75,000. When do I have to start repaying my Stafford loan? The first bill comes due six months after you've left school, whether that's after graduation or after you've dropped out. What are the advantages of a Stafford loan? Stafford loans have a fixed interest rate, so the size of your monthly payment won’t increase if interest rates rise. Through Income-Based Repayment, Stafford borrowers can ask to have their payments capped at 15 percent of their disposable income. As of December 2012, borrowers who demonstrate
    • A ref. guide for Higher Education Earthsoft Foundation of Guidance 96 financial hardship can also opt for the Pay as You Earn plan, which caps payments at 10 percent of discretionary income. And public servants who make 10 years worth of income-based repayments can have their remaining Stafford debts forgiven. What happens if I lose my job or get into other financial trouble? Call the Department of Education and ask about income-based payment options, such as the Pay as You Earn plan. If that doesn't bring your payments down to an affordable level, you can also ask for either "deferral" or "forbearance" of your payments, which could postpone or temporarily lower your payment requirement. What are the downsides of federal loans? Unlike credit card debt and mortgages, which can be canceled if you file for bankruptcy, education loans of all types—whether federal or private—must be paid. Most bankruptcy courts will not cancel them unless your situation is extremely dire.
