I-20 Approval Deadline

Overseas students applying for an I-20 must recieve notification of the approval of their I-20 by July 1, 2015

CUNY Assessment Tests and U.S. Arrival

In order to determine what classes a student may take, all incoming students are required to take exams in reading, writing, and math. The final date to take these tests is August 20, 2015. Overseas F-1 students should plan to arrive in the United States no later than August 17, 2015. Failure to take these tests will severely limit students' fall course selection and may require students to take classes not relevant for their degree in order to maintain F-1 status. 


To become an F-1 student, one must first apply to CUNY. After an applicant is accepted, s/he must obtain an I-20 before applying for an F-1 visa.
