A student’s I-20 is issued based upon the length of study he/she will pursue. For CATS Academy students, we will issue the I-20 for the full length they will study with us.
Students planning to only stay for one semester are therefore provided with an I-20 covering the length of one semester. Visas are issued for the same length of time as noted on the I-20.
For ONCAMPUS Boston students, an I-20 will be issued by Wheelock College (our host campus) for 1 year to cover the duration of our program. If the student is accepted to and plans to matriculate into a college or university following our program, the I-20 is transferred to the new institution.
Should the student be conditionally accepted and plan to matriculate into Wheelock College following our program, a 5 year I-20 will be issued.
