Next Step: TSA Clearance Instructions

The TSA clearance process is extremely important in completing your admission to Dean International. In order to begin training quickly, you should complete the TSA clearance process as soon as you are sure you would like to apply for enrollment; before arriving to the school.

The application processing fee for each course you plan to take is $130. This fee must be paid directly to the TSA by credit card. In addition, the name on the credit card used must be the same name used on the application.

Another important part of the TSA clearance process is fingerprinting portion. If you are able to process your fingerprints before arriving, you may be able to begin training with little or no delay. If your fingerprints are not processed before your arrival to the United States, you may delay the start of your training up to 45 days.

However, if there is no fingerprinting agency in your country, you will have to complete that portion of the TSA clearance process in the United States. You can verify if there is an agency in your home country by visiting, and completing the application form. An email will be sent to you requesting fingerprints and you will be shown a website that will list all fingerprint agencies. The TSA fee can be paid after you have received approval for your M-1 Student visa.
