Don’t panic if you forget your I-20. 联系 the ISSO as soon as you can. If there is time, we can mail you a new I-20 where you are.

It is important to enter as an F-1 student no matter what—do not enter on a tourist visa!

When you arrive, explain to the officer that you do not have the appropriate paperwork. Remember, your SEVIS record will always verify your student status. You will likely be passed into Secondary/Deferred Inspections, where an officer can review your record electronically. You should be issued an I-515A, which gives you 30 days temporary admission. During that 30 day window, you’ll need to secure your proper documentation and send it to Immigrations & Customs Enforcement. At that time, they will extend your status to D/S, Duration of Status.
