Step 4: Receive the Form I-20 or DS-2019
Students requesting a Form I-20 for F-1 status or Form DS-2019 for J-1 status will receive the documents as a PDF file via email. These documents will be sent to the student’s preferred email address as listed in their Student Center in ConnectCarolina because that will be the address indicated in SEVIS. Students will need to make sure they are checking their UNC email address for this form along with any other updates from ISSS.
Upon receiving the Form I-20 or Form DS-2019, students should print out the form and sign in ink at the bottom of page 1 in order to use the documents for the visa appointment and entry into the U.S.
