Very urgent. Two i20s issued from same university, received only one


I received my i20 from a university in March. Then they offered me funding and I accepted it, so they issued a new updated i20 mentioning about funding and dispatched it in April end. But I have not yet received the i20.

now I don’t know what to do.

can I apply for visa using previous i20 and fill out SEVIS fee using SEVIS id on previous i20?

or should I wait for the updated one as SEVIS id is very important and they might have updated my record with the new SEVIS id and removed the older one.

please help anyone if you have any id. I emailed university but they didn’t reply. It’s getting late and I need to apply do visa.

university is university of Illinois Chicago

DEFINITELY wait for the new I-20 to come in.

I am assuming that you are outside the U.S., and you’ll go to the embassy at some point to get your F-1. When you apply for the visa, you have to prove that you have enough money to comfortably cover the expenses of your studies – if the school does not have funding information listed on your I-20, then you will be required to show proof of financial ability by showing your own bank statements, etc.

Anyway, it should take at most a week to get the new I-20 by courier. Why are you in such a hurry?
