New Student Info Form: Initial Attendance

New students who are outside the United States and do not currently have an active SEVIS record will need an Initial Attendance I-20 or DS-2019 to apply for the visa. Whether this is your first academic program in the United States or you studied in the country previously with a break between your studies, you will need a new SEVIS record to show that you are eligible to study at the University of Rochester. Entry to the United States with an Initial Attendance document will require a valid visa listing the same school in your passport.
