The United States welcomes students from all countries and offers a wide array of courses across subject categories. This video provides information about the two admission intake sessions in the US. The universities in US encourage students to apply for the intake in August and January. Here Biruda Virkud - iGrad Global talks about the different intakes, which are available for students who apply for various courses.
Most of the time students are very eager to start their course in the university. As the universities in the US offer two intakes i.e. spring and fall, it is important to make a wise choice regarding the entry. As August is the beginning of the academic year students are often suggested to opt for the fall than the spring semester that begins in January.  As it is the prime intake time they get better opportunities in terms of options and will also get to interact with more students.
There are a lot of universities that offer spring intake for candidates. There are two issues that a student would face while opting for the spring intake. Firstly, as it is the fall back semester there might not be enough courses or faculty members for the university to offer, which can be a serious concern for students who apply. Secondly, most of the funding and scholarships are dispersed during the beginning of the academic year. These are the two primary reasons that students are suggested to opt for the intake in August. 
The next video in queue explains the time of application process for the universities in the US.
