Insurance and American Visa Information
If you are a student from outside of the United States, GEOS Languages PLUS, Los Angeles can provide you with medical insurance for your time at our school. We currently use an insurance company that will pay claims for 80% to 100% of the scheduled doctors' fees and medication. You may also obtain your own medical insurance, but we strongly recommend that you have good medical coverage while you stay in Los Angeles. Please contact the school for more information.
American Visa Information
What kind of visa do you need to study English with us? This depends on whether you decide to study full-time or part-time in the United States. We have written a small introduction to this question here.
GEOS Los Angeles helps hundreds of students each year with their F-1 student visa questions. Please contact us with your specific questions.
