Your child must have an I-20 from JHU to apply for an F-1 student visa at the U.S. embassy/consulate. Expect to receive an email notification from the JHU Office of International Services (OIS) within 5 business days of receiving your child’s CTY Summer Programs course registration assignment. OIS sends this email notification to the email address(es) you used on your child’s CTY application. Follow the instructions in the email from OIS to request and obtain the I-20. Note: although both parents may receive a message about the I-20 request, submit only one I-20 request per child. Parents should determine who will handle the I-20 request.
