Now that you’ve been accepted to Boise State, the next step is to create your I-20 form. Your I-20 is the form that you will use to apply for your F-1 student visa. To receive an I-20 from Boise State, you must show that you have the financial resources to pay for one full year of study. Your I-20 form contains important information—please read it carefully after receiving it, particularly the instructions to students on Page 2. Please also verify that all information is listed correctly and notify us immediately if there is an error.
How we create your I-20 depends on whether you are already in the U.S. on a student visa or outside of the U.S. applying for a student visa. If your spouse or children are coming with you to the United States, they will also need I-20 forms to apply for their F-2 visas.
There are two steps to providing us the information necessary to issue you an I-20:
- Complete and submit your Financial Documentation Form.
- Submit financial support documents that are less than six months old. All documents must be issued in English or have an official English translation. Documents should be on the official agency’s letterhead, or with the official agency’s signature or official seal.
Once Boise State has received all necessary documentation, we will review your submission, issue your I-20, and provide instructions for setting up the mailing of your document.
