If you are admitted to Penn as an international student, you will receive an Entry Document Application Form known as the "I-20" with your online decision notice. Students must complete and submit the I-20 application form to Penn's Office of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) immediately upon accepting the offer of admission. Once received, the I-20 application will be processed and when approved mailed to the student. Students then present this document to the US Consulate in their country of citizenship to receive their F-1 or J-1 student visa. Please visit the ISSS website to learn more.
