Receive Your Form I-20

A Form I-20 is required by the U.S. Department of State as a part of an F-1 visa application. It is issued by each university or college who admits you as a potential student in the United States. If you receive I-20s from more than one school, you will have to choose which school you will attend prior to the visa interview and supply that document to the visa officer.
