If an I-20 or DS-2019 is lost or stolen, contact the International Center immediately for a replacement.
To replace your I-20 or DS-2019, you must:
- Be in active F, M, or J status
- Be enrolled full-time (unless final semester) or on post-completion OPT/Academic Training
- Please note that while this is generally a routine process that can be completed fairly quickly, please allow 2-5 business days in case issues arrive.
Failure to have a valid I-20/DS-2019 could create issues should you have to prove your identification
Failure to report a lost or stolen I-20/DS-2019 leaves you vulnerable to identity theft should someone else acquire your document.
