Applying for the I-20

Information for New International Students

This section covers basic information that new international students need to have upon admittance to Saint Mary's Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs. 

I-20 Application
Requesting an I-20
Transferring your SEVIS Record and Issue of New I-20

A student transferring from a school within the United States must apply for a new I-20 as outlined above and also have the electronic SEVIS record transferred to Saint Mary’s. Please notify the international student adviser at the current school of the intention to transfer, provide a copy of the acceptance letter to Saint Mary’s, request completion of the I-20 Transfer form and request the SEVIS record be transferred to Saint Mary’s.

Only your current school has access to your SEVIS record; therefore, Saint Mary’s cannot issue a new I-20 until your SEVIS record is transferred.

You must check-in at the Office of Student Services within 10 business days of the semester start date.
