Question about receiving more than one I-20
So far i have got more than one offer from the several university of USA. So that i have been thinking to accept more than one university’s offer and envisaged to get more than one I-20. After then i will choose the best one to which i want to go. Hence i want to know will it be ok to get multiple I-20? Will it make any hamper in order to get visa or further procedure?
Accept More than One I-20?
So far you’re like 10th person to ask the same question in last few days.
You can accept multiple I-20’s from different universities.
If university is asking for deposit to send I-20 , I will be skeptical to select that university.
If in case you don’t have other admit then you are forced to pay the deposit nd get the I20.
If you get admission from better university later, then don’t hesitate to select that university. Don’t try to be smart and save $200 or $500.
University know if you pay for I-20 most likely you are going to attend that school. That’s a marketing tactic (or tap), but dont fall for it.
After reading the comments, looks like students are misinformed and think its MAJOR Mistake to have more than one I-20.
Here is the actual sentences from ICE.gov (Official Agency responsible for Issuing I-20)
Once you are accepted to an SEVP-certified school, your school will give you a document called a Form I-20. The Form I-20 is a paper record of your information in our database called SEVIS. Each school that accepts you will mail you a Form I-20. Before you apply for your visa, you must select one school’s Form I-20.
Check your Form I-20 against your passport information to make sure that your name and date of birth (DOB) are correctly listed and spelled. If it is not correct, contact the school official who sent you the Form 1-20.
