How to apply for an I-20 or DS-2019

We know that preparing for graduate study in the U.S. is a big decision that requires a lot of planning. In order to better assist you with what’s ahead, please review the information below regarding the I-20 or DS-2019 process at NJCU.

After you receive an official offer of admission, you will be asked to submit a completed I-20/DS-2019 application
The application has three parts: 

  • Online data form
  • Affidavit of sponsorship
  • Transfer form (only for students currently in the U.S. on an F-1 visa) If you are currently in the U.S. on an F-1 visa, you must submit copies of your current visa and I-20.

Once we receive your completed I-20/DS-2019 application, we will work with you to ship your documents to you.

You must also submit the following items: 

  • Entrance Health Record (required for all NJCU students)
  • Housing Application (required only if on-campus housing is needed)
