F-1 Students

F-1 student status is the most common status used by international students at the University of Idaho. In general, F-1 students must engage in a full-time course of study at the university. Admissions will issue Form I-20 to eligible students who indicate that they would like to pursue F-1 status. Form I-20 supports applications for F-1 visas and F-1 status. Most students apply for an F-1 visa stamp at a U.S. consulate abroad. In general, only after receiving an F-1 visa stamp may these students apply to enter the U.S. in F-1 status.

Spouses and children of F-1 students are eligible for F-2 status, and may be issued Forms I-20 to support their applications for F-2 visas and F-2 status.
