International students are defined as "non-immigrant" visitors who come to the United States temporarily to take classes. A non-immigrant is someone who:

  • intends to stay in the US temporarily
  • does not have US citizenship or legal permanent resident status (a valid "green card")
  • currently is in the US on a non-immigrant visa status (without a valid green card)
  • applies for a visa to be allowed entry into the US
  • Students under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program with an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) are considered international students at Tennessee Tech.
  • Other visa types are also considered international students, like H-4, E2, L2, O2, R2, and holders of A, and V visas.
