New Graduate Student Orientation
After being accepted, you will receive an I-20 form from UT Tyler with your admission information, SEVIS fee remittance information, and acceptance letter. Please carefully read all the information in your packet. The I-20 form should be taken to the U. S. Embassy or Consulate in your home country to obtain the necessary F-1 Student Visa. Remember to also take documentary evidence of financial support for your studies in the U.S., since the official may request such evidence.
