Student Visas

Immigration Processing

Once you have been admitted to CU Denver and accept your offer of admission, you will begin working on your immigration documents. 

International Services Specialists in International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) handle the immigration process for international students. ISSS will issue an immigration document (Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 ) to you, if applicable, only after you have replied to your offer of admission and submitted the Immigration Document Creation Request. 

You will be contacted within five (5) business days of receiving your decision letter and will need to provide: 

  • Proof of Financial Support (F-1 and J-1 visas only)
  • Passport/Visa Information

Please note: The email for the Immigration Document Creation Request will not be sent more than 6 months prior to the start date of your admit term. If you were admitted more than 6 months in advance of the start date of your chosen term, you may need to wait to begin your immigration paperwork. Please contact with any questions regarding immigration.

Note: International students living outside of the US will need to provide a copy of their passport. Those living in the US should be prepared to submit a copy of their passport, visa, Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record, Form I-20, Form DS-2019, or Form I-797 (if applicable). In all correspondence, please use your name as it appears on your passport.
