10 Steps to Success

Request Your I-20
  • Newly admitted students who plan to apply for F-1 status while out of the U.S. should read New Student: Initial I-20.
  • Transfer students from another U.S. institution who have valid F-1 status and are admitted to transfer to Marymount University should read Transfer Student: Transfer SEVIS Record / I-20
  • Enrolled Marymount students who plan to change their visa type by applying for an F-1 visa while traveling out of the U.S. should follow the same instructions provided for New Student: Initial I-20.
  • Enrolled Marymount students who plan to request Change of Status to F-1 through application to USCIS while remaining in the U.S. should read Change of Visa Status.
Proof of Funding
All international students who request an I-20 (Initial and Transfer) must submit a Marymount University Declaration of Finances form and proof of funding document(s) to show funding for the estimated total cost of at least one academic year of their program. Please read requirements carefully before submitting your proof of funding documentation. 

F-1 Visa/Status Next Steps in the Process
Once your I-20 is issued, next steps: International Student Orientation
All international students who are either new to F-1 status or who are transferring-in are required to attend Marymount University's new International Student Orientation. For orientation information and to register, please click here. 

Initial Immigration Check-In
