Apply for a Visa
If you are in need of an I-20, we will process this information online within a few weeks of receiving your Intent Form (and deposit check for M.E.M.s). Once Thayer School starts this process for you, you will receive an email with a link to an online form that you must complete and submit. You will also need to scan and upload the following:
- A copy of your passport photo ID page, and renewal page if needed
- Financial evidence if you are using personal or outside funding or loans to pay for tuition and or living expenses
- If you are currently enrolled at a U.S. school, or have been enrolled during the past 5 months, the Transfer Verification Form must be completed and returned with copies of current I-94 card and current I-20 form. This separate form is available upon request from Dartmouth's Office of Visa and Immigration Services.
Once you have completed tasks and submitted materials, Dartmouth's Office of Visa and Immigration Services should be able to issue the I-20 form within 2 weeks. Mailing and internal processes can add an additional 2 weeks. We recommend that you do not make the visa application until you have the I-20 form in hand, as we cannot guarantee a certain processing time.
