Please note that because Cleary University makes extensive use of distance technology in its delivery of instruction, current immigration regulations prohibit the University’s issuance of F-1 visas for programs other than those created for traditional students.
Cleary University’s 100% online programs are available to international students who remain outside of the United States. Students must meet the admission requirements as outlined above for the appropriate category and must prove proficiency in the English language, also outlined above.
