• Application Process
    Thank you for your interest in the Los Angeles Unified School District Foreign Student Admissions Office (FSAO) Program

     Applications are currently being accepted for the 2019-2020 school year.  Applications for the Spring 2020 semester will be accepted after September 15th.

    The application deadline for Spring enrollment is November 15th.  Requests submitted after this date will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
    The Fall semester of 2019-2020 school year begins on Tuesday, August 20, 2019.  The Spring semester begins on Monday, January 13, 2020. Please consider this date when making flight arrangements and allow sufficient time for the completion and submission of school enrollment forms prior to actual attendance.

    Our office follows the school calendar.  Therefore, we are unable to process requests for I-20s during District breaks, holidays or summer vacation.  The deadlines of May 15th and November 15th allow for processing time.  Please adhere to these dates.

    The 2019-2020 tuition amount for an F-1 student is: $18,797.10 per year or $9,398.55 per semester.  (Tuition is calculated yearly based upon state/federal regulations and represents the unsubsidized cost of a high school education in the LAUSD.) 
    In addition, there is a non-refundable processing fee of $350 per F-1 student.  Applications not completed by the deadline will be charged an additional $100.00 per application. The deadline for fall applications is May 15th annually and the deadline for spring is November 15th annually.

    If you are interested in applying, please review all materials carefully and submit the required documentation via email to studyinla@lausd.net after March 1st.
