RMA International Family Reception

International Students at RMA

Tuition for international cadets at Riverside Military Academy is $37,750. This includes English as a Second Language (ESL) classes during the school year. There is an additional initial uniform issue fee of $2,598 for all new cadets. A deposit of $2,500 is due upon acceptance and prior to the issue of the I-20 form. The remaining balance is due on or before registration day. Should the student be unable to enroll, the deposit will be refunded, less a $500 processing fee.

Student Visas

International students must have a student visa to attend Riverside Military Academy. To apply for a visa at a U.S. embassy or consulate, you must first have a SEVIS (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System)-generated document called an I-20, which is issued by Riverside Military Academy after you have been accepted for admission. Because you will be required to submit the I-20 form when you apply for a visa, we encourage you to begin the application process as quickly as possible. Please visit our International Application Checklist & Forms web page for more details.

Student Insurance

All Riverside cadets are required to have healthcare insurance and up-to-date immunization records. To purchase USA healthcare coverage, please visit ISM Insurance.
