Receiving Your I-20
Document your ability to meet all educational and living expenses for one year of
study in accessVIS, Stony Brook's portal for visa and immigration services. If you
are unable to provide proof of financial support, you will not be eligible to receive
an I-20 or to enroll at Stony Brook University.
Log into AccessVIS
After you have paid your tuition deposit and submitted your visa application, we will
begin preparing your I-20. Admitted students who do not fully document proof of financial
support after they submit their deposits should be aware of our
deposit refund policies. Do not schedule an appointment with your consulate or schedule travel plans until
you have received your I-20.
