I-20 Endorsed for Travel
If you need your I-20 endorsed for travel, please complete this Travel Request Form and email it to email@example.com. If you need to travel while classes are still in session during Spring 2020, the academic advisor signature is waived. Students are not required to obtain an academic advisor signature on the Travel Request Form for summer session travel. We will coordinate shipping your I-20 to you with the travel endorsement.
