Check your I-20 Expiration Date!

You must always have a valid I-20. If your I-20 is about to expire then you must apply for a new one before it expires. Bring your I-20 to the IP office IMMEDIATELY and we can help you. You can see if your I-20 expiration date by reading #5 on the first page.

Traveling outside the US?

You must get a signature on your I-20 before you leave! If you have had your I-20 signed within six months of your return date you do not need another signature.
