You need a Form I-20 or a Form DS-2019 to apply for a visa to enter the United States as an international student. You must be admitted before EWU will mail your Form I-20 or DS-2019.
Eastern will issue you an I-20 or DS-2019 once your admissions application is complete and approved.
When you receive your I-20 or DS-2019 from EWU, you will be able to apply for your visa following the rules established by the U.S. Consulate Office in your country. Be sure to apply early! It can take 60-90 days to apply for and receive a visa.
EWU does not decide if you receive a visa. Only the United States consular officer who interviews you during the visa application process can decide if you receive a visa. This means that even if you are accepted to EWU and have received your I-20 or DS-2019, the Consular Officers must still decide if you receive a visa.
Carry your I-20 or DS-2019 with you at all times when you are living or traveling in the United States.
You can start preparing for your visa interview.
