I am requesting an "Initial Attendance" I-20.
Initial Attendance: Select this form for any F/M student who plans to enter the United States to begin study at your school, if you
Are applying for F visa at the US visa consulate.
Are NOT transferring a SEVIS record to your school from another U.S. school.
Are NOT applying for a change of status in the United States.
These students generally reside overseas and use the Form I-20 for visa issuance and initial entry through a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) port of entry.
