Foreign students seeking enrollment in GUSD schools need only provide the usual proof of physical residence required for all students (utility bills, escrow papers, or rental agreement).
By Federal law, students residing in the United States with a valid Visitor Visa (B-1/B-2) may only enroll in school after a Change of Status document has been approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS - formerly INS). For more information, please visit the USCIS website.
GUSD does not accept students admitted to attend specified schools on an F-1 Visa (also known as an I-20). However, dependents of an F-1 Visa holder, who are in the country on F-2 Visas, may enroll in GUSD schools.
