Obtain an I-20


If you need an I-20 (certificate of eligibility) for an F-1 student visa, you must submit the following documents, in addition to the previously stated admission material. If you are a student with an active F-1 student visa and you currently hold an I-20 from another U.S. institution, you must arrange for the transfer of your SEVIS record to Marymount and obtain an I-20 from Marymount.

Please note that Marymount University will cover the cost of shipping the initial I-20. International students are responsible for all subsequent I-20 shipping fees unless an error was made by the university. If a student requires an updated I-20 due to deferral, errors in documentation submitted, or electronically approved an I-20 with errors, they will be required to cover the cost of shipping an updated I-20 through Shipping costs for updated I-20's due to a visa denial will be considered on a case by case basis.
