Travel Signature Day

What Is This For?

International students in F-1 or J-1 status who are planning to travel outside of the U.S. must have a valid travel signature on their Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 in order to re-enter the U.S. For F-1 students, the travel signature can be found on page 2 of the Form I-20. For J-1 students, the travel signature can be found in the bottom-right corner on page 1 of the Form DS-2019. For currently enrolled F-1 and J-1 international students, a travel signature is valid for one year. 

The purpose of Travel Signature Day is to allow currently enrolled international students only* to set an appointment to receive the necessary travel endorsement on their I-20/DS-2019 for re-entry into the U.S. All sessions will take place at the International Student Services office and documents will be processed immediately if possible.
*Students currently on OPT or OPT STEM Extension must submit travel signature requests along with an Employment Reporting Form to the ISS office and go through regular processing.
