About the Form I-20

A Form I-20 is issued to admitted students who want to study in-person in the United States on an F-1 visa. The student uses information on the Form I-20 to schedule an F-1 visa interview at a US embassy or consulate in their home country. The Form I-20 provides biographical information about the student and information about the student's intended Program of Study. If there are any errors, alert your DSO immediately.

Students on a J-1 visa will receive a DS-2019, which also has a SEVIS ID.
