New Major I-20 Request

New Major I-20 Request

When you are accepted into a major or if you change your major, you must request a new I-20. F-1 regulations require the I-20 to be updated with the new program information.
Please note that minors and second majors do not require an I-20 update. They will be updated in the electronic SEVIS record but not printed on a new I-20. (If you apply for CPT or OPT, the second major will be noted in the remarks section of your I-20).
To request an updated I-20 with a new major:

  1.  Schedule an appointment with Dr. Petoskey in order to make sure your major change won’t cause any significant delays or issues with your degree.
  2.  Potentially consider meeting with a school advisor to make sure you won’t fall too far behind when changing major.
  3.  Dr. Petoskey will assist you in updating your SEVIS record and printing you a new I-20 with the new major on it.
