Dear Biz Bound:

We would strongly advise you to visit the iMahal Education Section and spend some time researching. All the information you have requested is available there. You can find a List of Business (commerce) Colleges and Universities in the US. You can use the iMahal College Finder to determine which schools are most likely to admit you, based on your performance and personal needs. Most business schools offer IT as a component of their undergraduate programs.

Coming to the US for studies, you would be identified as an International or Foreign student. Virtually no financial aid is available to undergraduate International students. This means that you must be able to afford anywhere from $15,000 to $40,000 per year, depending on the type (private or public), quality and location of your academic institution.

If you think you can get past this hurdle, then the process is fairly straightforward. However, admissions requirements vary from school to school. You are thus required to research the requirements of prospective schools individually. Typically, you would have to take some entrance exam(s), like the Scholastic Aptitude Test or SAT, and/or the Test of English as Foreign Language or TOEFL. You would also typically have to get 2-4 letters of recommendation. Based on your academic performance and your performance on the entrance exams, plus recommendations, your suitability for admission would be determined.

Once offered admission, the school will issue the required paperwork and guide you through the visa process. This process is fairly simple.
