You will need the initial I-20, your official acceptance/admission letter, and other official documents for your visa interview (see Step 4).
All official documents can be submitted via the website by clicking the “Submit Official Documents” button.
Once you are admitted, an official Admission Letter will be issued to you. After you are admitted, we will process an initial I-20 document for you. The quicker you’re able to provide the following documents, the quicker we are able to process your application, generate acceptance materials, and an initial I-20.
NOTE: If you are a transfer student and already have your F-1 visa, your initial I-20 will be issued once your current school releases/transfers your SEVIS record to us. Please remember to provide your current school with the transfer eligibility form (see Step 2), so that we can document this step in the process.
