Thank you for your interest in Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College. NEO’s mission is to provide opportunities that promote excellence in learning, service and leadership. That mission extends to our students from around the world who make up an important part of the intellectual and cultural community in northeast Oklahoma.

In order to attend NEO A&M College as an F-1 Visa student, all required documents must be completed and on file in our Admissions Office. Once we receive the required documentation, we will issue you an I-20 form which you must take to the consulate for your Visa.

When You Arrive at NEO

You may enter the U.S. up to 30 days prior to the beginning of school, however, the NEO Dorms will not open until the weekend before school starts. Follow these steps when you arrive on campus:

  1. You must check in at the International Programs Office (IPO), located in the Student Center of the Student Union, during the first week of classes. Bring your passport, I-20, and housing assignment. Students who fail to register will be auto-terminated, dropped from classes, and required to return to their country of origin.
  2. All international first-time college students are required to take the ACCUPLACER test before registering for classes in their first semester. This test is given to help determine which Math, English, and Reading classes you should register for first, and it has no influence on your admissions or grades. Study guides are available online. 
  3. You will be assigned an advisor in your major who will enroll you as a student at NEO if you have not already been enrolled.
  4. NEO requires tuberculosis screening for all international students. You will need to be tested by the school nurse and submit the result to the IPO within 30 days of your program start date. Contact the school nurse at +1 (918) 533-4325.


In accordance with federal law, the NEO International Student Office will not communicate about a student’s application, admission, or enrollment at NEO A&M College with anyone other than the student applying. Students should use their own personal email addresses when contacting the school. Documents submitted by international recruiters will not be accepted.
