Newly Redesigned I-20 Form

Dear International Student:

Beginning June 26, 2015, any new Form I-≠20 that is produced will be in new redesigned format. All F-≠1 students and F-≠2 dependents will be required to have a new version of the form by July 1, 2016. Some notable changes you will find on the redesigned Form I≠-20 include:

  • A more visible SEVIS ID number, school and program of study for the student
  • A better separation of the studentís information from the dependent(s) information
  • General design improvements that include moving the instructions to the third page of the Form I-≠20, as well as the removal of the barcode, and the blocks for visa and port of entry information

For more information, please see the DHS Study in the States website anouncement and the DHS Redesigned Form I-20 SEVIS Fact Sheet.

An Important Message to Our Students

To our dear students and friends:

We are writing to you to share some very sad news that our dear Director and Associate Dean, Danielle Guichard-Ashbrook, died last night, surrounded by her family.

Danielle was devoted to each and every one of you. Despite her serious illness, Danielle worked relentlessly at what she loved most - serving international students, and making a difference in their lives. She was an example to us all, and we will continue in her footsteps in our devotion to you all.

Please know that we are always here for you. You can contact any of us, in person, by phone or email. Our doors are open for you tomorrow and after to grieve, share, and celebrate Danielle. We will have a Book of Condolence available in the ISO reception for you to sign, if you wish, which will be sent to the Ashbrook family. Always remember how special you were to Danielle.


With sincere gratitude, and feelings of deep sadness,
Maria, Antoinette, Aurora, Carlene, Emily, Janka, Joycelyn, Mayoka, and Sylvia
