International Student Services (ISS) is implementing changes to the new student I-20 (F-1 visa) and DS-2019 (J-1 visa) process.
Upload Documents to AIS
All admitted students are now able to upload the necessary documentation needed for an I-20 or DS-2019 to the Applicant Information System (AIS), https://applicant.tamu.edu. Please note that while applicants in Mays Business School, Health Science Center and the English Language Institute will be able to upload their I-20 or DS-2019 documentation to AIS, they will not be able to submit admission documentation or check the status of their admission.
Now that all international students are able to upload to AIS, we will no longer be accepting documents form students via email, mail or fax. The purpose is to prevent duplicate processing.
Students will need to upload the following documents in order to be issued an I-20/DS-2019.
Proof of financial support. This includes personal and family funds, and departmental funds.
The Immigration Questionnaire and information concerning proof of financial support are located at http://iss.tamu.edu/Prospective-Students/You-are-admitted-Now-What.
The following forms have been revised.
The following forms are no longer required.
Tracking the Status of the I-20 or DS-2019
Within this semester, international students will be able to track the status of their I-20/DS-2019 in AIS. Until then, academic departments can check the status of the I-20 or DS-2019 on GOAINTL and SPACMNT in Compass.
It is our goal once the necessary documents are received, reviewed and considered complete, the I-20 or DS-2019 will be issued within 5 business days.
