Please be aware that the U.S. Department of State has released a redesigned Form I-20 and Form DS-2019. All F-1/F-2 I-20s and J-1/J-2 DS-2019s printed after June 26, 2015 will have the new design (a sample redesigned I-20 is attached). Previously issued I-20s and DS-2019s which have the former design will still be valid until July 1, 2016 and can be used for I-9 purposes, obtaining visas, entering the U.S., and SSA/DMV applications.
****At this time, you do not need to take any action ****
OIS will be systematically distributing updated Forms I-20/DS-2019 to students and scholars throughout the next 12 months.
