1-20 Information
  1. Upon receiving the I-20, please immediately sign (in blue ink) and date the document.
  2. Pay the I-901 fee of $350 U.S. dollars. This fee must be paid PRIOR to your embassy or consulate visit, and it is payable via credit card online. Failure to pay this fee will result in student visas being denied.
  3. Once the fee is paid and approved, students should make an appointment with your embassy or consulate.
  4. The I-20 and payment of the I-901 fee DO NOT guarantee a student’s ability to exit their home country. Most countries require appointments with an embassy or consulate where students will be granted a visa (Canadian students can simply enter at a border crossing after paying the fee). Our offices have no control over the decision to admit entrance to the U.S.
  5. Schedule appointments with plenty of lead time to allow you to exit your country.
  6. Students who schedule appointments near the start of the semester are more likely to be denied a visa by their home country.
  7. Prior to receiving the Form I-20, prepare to obtain a passport. You should see policies in your country for how to obtain your passport documents.
  8. Upon approval from the embassy or consulate, make all necessary travel plans. When travel plans are secured, contact the registrar with the plans and anticipated travel date.
  9. When arriving at a U.S. port of entry, students will need to provide your passport, F1 Visa and Form I-20 to customs officials for processing. They are asked to pay the $6 fee for the I-94 (arrival and departure record) at this time.
