Immigration Questionnaire

Reporting to the University

Congratulations on your admission to Georgetown University! Please note: we will open the immigration document application for students admitted for the Summer and Fall 2017 terms on Monday, February 27th.

Students requesting F-1 or J-1 documents from Georgetown University must complete the immigration questionnaire below.  J-1 students coming to study at Georgetown with a Form DS-2019 from another sponsor must report their information. All other non-U.S. citizens are not required to report information to the Office of Global Services.

The Office of Global Services serves students who have been formally admitted to a program at Georgetown University Main Campus only.  Students admitted to programs at the School of Continuing Studies (SCS) or the Law Center must follow different processes and should NOT fill out this form. Newly admitted SCS students, click here to be redirected to the SCS website.  Newly admitted Law Center students, click here to be redirected to the Law Center website. 

  • If you need an immigration document (Form I-20 for F-1 or Form DS-2019 for J-1) to study in the United States


  • If you currently hold an active Form I-20 (F-1) or Form DS-2019 (J-1) and need to transfer your SEVIS immigration record from your previous institution to Georgetown

then you MUST complete a 5 step immigration document request process.

Students must submit all documents to request the Form I-20 or Form DS-2019 no later than 4 weeks before their program start date. The deadline to submit all of your documents for a Fall 2017 start date is July 21, 2017.  Most international students study at Georgetown in F-1 immigration status.

The current processing time for immigration document issuance is two weeks from the date OGS receives all proper supporting documentation.
