The first step in applying for a visa is the request for the I-20, which is completed through the University of Rochester International Services Office (ISO).

Rochester Planning Memo

Students should watch for an email (sent to personal or work account) from the University of Rochester with a link to provide the information needed for the I-20 Form. This will include some passport and financial information; students will also need to upload a copy of the passport and financial information.  You will need to use your University of Rochester NetID in order to complete this process; you will also need to use DUO and know your Student ID (UID). You received your account information shortly before you started the MBA Program; but you may need to initialize your set up.
