Just got a query….a big problem actually. I received an i20 from university, but the birth date mentioned is wrong…….so can I just take a letter from the university that it is a mistake……during visa interview or could you please suggest me something?

Wrong Date of Birth in I-20
Couple of things could have happened here.
- You submitted wrong date of birth when completing the application and university used that to issue I-20
- You gave the correct date of birth, but university made a mistake
So, it really doesn’t matter who made the mistake, you can request the university to issue new I-20. ( How does a I-20 form look like? )
Send a copy of passport page that contains your demographics information.
If your visa interview date is approaching, have them send the new I-20 visa FedEx or DHL or other courier service.
Typically universities will not send via express mail, but you can request and pay for it.
i just realized, I have previously wrote a post for the same question.
