Yes, you can open a Global Student account before receiving your U.S. student Visa.
You’ll have a maximum of 6 full monthly statement cycles after the account opening date to provide us a digital copy of your qualifying visa document. But, your Student Benefit Fee Waivers will not begin until your qualifying visa document has been received – so it is important to provide us with a copy of your visa as soon as you receive it.
Please note, if you fail to provide a digital copy of your qualifying visa document with the required timeframe, you will forfeit the opportunity to qualify for Student Fee Waiver Benefits.
For complete details on Student Fee Waiver Benefits and qualification requirements, please refer to the Global Student Terms and Conditions.
