DS-2019 reprint: ​Applicants must enter the USA within 20 days of the date stated on their DS-2019 form. If this is not possible then ASSE will need to reissue your DS-2019 form with the correct dates in order to update SEVIS. There is a £95 fee for this service. MyEducation (UK) will work with you to choose the most suitable date for your departure.

Insurance Options

You can choose to upgrade your insurance coverage from our US sponsor for an additional £40 per month of your placement. The table below shows a comparison of what is included. MyEducation (UK) recommends that you choose to upgrade your insurance to ensure that you have full and maximum coverage while in the USA. If you choose not to take the premium insurance package, we recommend purchasing a separate insurance policy to complement the basic insurance policy from MyEducation.

Payment process

Payment for the program is split into three payments.

  • 50% of fee + cost of a site visit (if required) is due after interview and acceptance by MyEducation
  • Once your application is accepted by the US sponsor then $180 SEVIS fee is due for payment
  • Final 50% of program fee is due once the DS2019 form has been issued by the sponsor
  • Please note that payments are accepted via bank transfer only.

Cancellation of your program must be submitted in writing and it will take effect from the date it is received in the office. Refunds will be made according to the following schedule:
