How to receive an I-20
Once an international student is admitted to A&M-Commerce their admission file is forwarded to the ISSO for processing of the I-20 (F-1 students). As soon as the ISSO receives a student's admission file we will send the student an email requesting some additional information and also explaining the process for issuing the I-20. We understand that students need the I-20 as quickly as possible so they can apply for the student visa and we appreciate students being patient while we review their admission and issue the I-20.
International Students Currently Studying in the U.S.
International students currently studying in the U.S. or on Optional Practical Training employment who want to study at A&M-Commerce will need to have their SEVIS record and I-20 transferred to our university after being admitted. Students will also need to complete a Transfer Release Form and have their current international advisor complete the form and email or fax to the ISS. Once we have received the transfer release form, SEVIS record, and I-20 we will update a student's SEVIS record for their studies at A&M-Commerce. Students who plan to travel outside the U.S. may request a Transfer Pending I-20 for travel. Keep in mind that a student must have their SEVIS record and I-20 transferred to A&M-Commerce no later than 60 days from their last class date or the end date for their OPT to avoid a violation of their visa status.
