Documents F-1 Students Must Upload
- Sign and date your I-20 at the bottom of the front page before you scan or photograph your document for upload.
- If you are under 18 years old, both the student and a parent or legal guardian must sign. The parent should also write their name, address, and date.
Do not upload an I-20 from a different US school. If you are transfering schools in the U.S., wait until you have your UW I-20.
