  • If you don’t have a sponsor, you’ll receive this as soon as you complete your portion of the application.
  • Click the link in the email to pay the $35 non-refundable application fee online using VISA, Mastercard, AMEX, Visa Debit, or Debit Mastercard via a convenient, safe, secure, password-protected source.
    • If you prefer, you can visit an AIT Office to pay in person via credit or debit card.
