Please submit the StepUp Program Registration Form by the deadline stated in your departmental letter.  Applicants who are not applying to Lehigh should submit the registration form at least 45 days in advance of the start of StepUp in order to allow enough time for the visa process.


After receiving your registration form, the English as a Second Language office will send you a confirmation letter, orientation information, and an invoice for the program tuition. You will also receive visa information from the Office of International Students and Scholars.

Insurance Information

Lehigh University requires that all students have adequate insurance coverage for the duration of their studies. For international students who enter the U.S. as a "J" visa holder, U.S. law requires full insurance coverage. The StepUp program does not provide medical insurance for participants, so you will need to make your own arrangements.

Visa Information

The International Students and Scholars Office at Lehigh will issue the immigration documents necessary for you to attend the StepUp Program only upon receipt of a completed registration form and proof of full financial support. If you have specific visa questions, please contact OISS.
