Why you need an I-20

Form I-20 is a visa eligibility document issued by Northeastern University to certify that an eligible international student has met the admission requirements for a full-time program of study and has demonstrated sufficient financial support for his/her studies in the USA. This visa eligibility document is needed to apply for a nonimmigrant student visa at a USA Embassy or USA Consulate to obtain F-1 status within the USA.

Depending on what school at Northeastern University you are attending, how you fill out your I-20 form could vary. The instructions below cover who is I-20 eligible, what documents they need to fill out their I-20, and what to expect from the process as a whole.
