Information About New I-20 Format
Due to a recent update in the SEVIS system, there is a new format for the form I-20.
If you have already made an I-20 request and your request is processed on or after June 29, 2015, you will receive the new version of the I-20.
The current version of the form I-20 remains valid for one year, through July 1, 2016. Government agencies such as Customs and Border Protection, the Social Security Administration, and the Department of Public Safety have been informed of the changes and will be accepting both versions of the I-20.
Please do NOT request a reprint of your I-20 for the purpose of obtaining the new version. Over the course of the next year, the OIE will be systematically issuing updated I-20s for all students. Additional information will be sent via e-mail as soon as it is available.
