Students requesting F-1 or J-1 sponsorship from UNC Chapel Hill, must complete and submit all of the e-forms in the ISSS Admitted/New Student Intake process, including:

  • New Student Questionnaire
  • Personal Information
  • Dependent Information

Once all forms have been submitted, students will receive an email confirmation.

Processing of the Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 takes approximately three weeks from the date the all forms (as listed above) in the Admitted/New Student Intake process have been submitted. Once the Form I-20 has been issued, it will be sent to the student’s UNC email address; Form DS-2019 will be sent to the student via mail.

Students should be sure to check their regular inbox and junk/spam mail for both their UNC and personal accounts.  Students should contact the ISSS office for assistance at, if needed.
