EPIK application process

List of Required Documents for Applying to EPIK

Before you submit your documents to EPIK, make sure you have the following.


College Transcripts FAQs

sealWhat do they mean by “sealed?” A stamp or sticker over the back of the envelope, issued exclusively by your school.

Can/should I open my transcripts? Noooooooo! Don’t do it! EPIK won’t accept college transcripts with broken seals.

How many do I need? While I ordered four copies from my university, I only ever wound up using one (when I submitted all my documents in the final application stages). However, sometimes during the diploma apostille or visa issuance process they ask for them, apparently. ‘Didn’t happen to me, though.


Criminal Background Check FAQs

fbibackgroundcheck1What’s the deal with this CRC/criminal background check? If you are an American citizen applying to EPIK, part of your application must include an apostilled FBI background check (also known as a Criminal Record Check, CRC, for non-Americans). Basically they want to make sure they’re not letting a crazy outlaw loose on the future of their country.

Worried about a traffic ticket ruining your application? Don’t stress. The only offenses that will get you denied are those related to drugs, drinking, stealing, assault, etc. All you really have to be concerned with is that the background check/CRC is issued within 6 months of your E2 Visa application date.


College Diploma FAQs

apostille-exampleWhy do I need to include a copy of my diploma in the application? Having a college degree is one of the elligibility requirements for the EPIK program. Please note, though, that you should ultimately send EPIK a copy of your diploma and not the original, as it will no tbe returned to you.

Does the copy have to be in color? No, black and white is fine.

My diploma’s in Latin. Does that matter? Yes. Ask your university registrar for a copy of the English translation. Obtain that copy and staple it to the copy of your Latin diploma?
