ADDITIONAL I-20 REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS CURRENTLY STUDYING IN THE U.S.
If you are currently studying in the U.S. on an F-1 Visa, you must complete a transfer verification of your F-1 status to Loyola University Chicago. Along with your I-20, we will send you a "Transfer Verification" form with instructions on how to complete the transfer of your F-1 status. This form should be completed by the International Advisor at your current or most recent school attended, and submitted with the information requested above.
After you have been admitted to an academic department and we have received all of the information requested above, you will receive your I-20 form (or DS-2019) form in the mail. Please contact our office if your I-20 (or DS-2019) is delayed.

Once you have received an I-20 form or DS-2019 form, you must take the form to the U.S. Consulate office or Embassy to apply for an F-1 or J-1 student visa to enter the U.S.
