Required TSA Screening
All International Students must complete TSA screening prior to entering the United States for flight training.
It is very important that you begin the process of getting your TSA clearance as soon as you make the decision to enroll. Doing this before you arrive will ensure a quicker start to your training. The application processing fee for each course is $130. The name on the credit card used must match the name on the application. If there is no fingerprinting* agency located in your home country, you will need to have the fingerprint portion of this process completed after entering the United States. You can verify if there is an agency in your home country by going to the TSA link: www.flightschoolcandidates.gov , and completing the form. An email will be sent to you requesting fingerprints and you will be given access to a website that will list all fingerprinting agencies. The TSA fee can be paid after you have received approval for your M-1 Student Visa.
