When will I get my I-20?

The Office of International Programs issues all Forms I-20 (and Forms DS-2019) for students intending to hold F-1 (or J-1) visa status at the start of their studies at the University of Mississippi. Form I-20 (or DS-2019) will be issued to you AFTER you have applied, been admitted, and evidence of fiscal solvency (which may include university scholarships or external funding support) is deemed to meet stated requirements.

Students will be provided with the option of having Form I-20 (or DS-2019) express-mailed to them at their own cost, if so preferred. Form I-20 (or DS-2019) is needed to apply for the F-1 (or J-1) visa at your local U.S. Consulate.
