Broadcast Message: New Electronic Form I-20 Issuance Guidance on ICE.gov/COVID19

To: DSOs and PDSOs at SEVP-certified schools

Date: March 26, 2020

Number: 2003-03

 

On March 26, 2020, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) updated the coronavirus(COVID-19) FAQs on https://www.ice.gov/covid19 to provide the following guidance on electronicForm I-20 issuance:

Can DSOs electronically send signed Forms I-20 to students instead of physically mailing theforms?

Yes, due to COVID-19, DSOs may electronically send Forms I-20 to student email addresses listed inSEVIS. In the case of a minor students, the email address may belong to their parent or legal guardian.Schools do not need to request permission from SEVP or report their plans to electronically send FormsI-20 as part of their COVID-19 procedural changes.

What methods can DSOs use to sign and send Forms I-20?

SEVP has identified the following methods to sign and send the Form I-20:

  • Email a scanned version of the physically signed Form I-20;
  • Email a digitally signed Form I-20 using electronic signature software; or
  • Email a digitally signed Form I-20 that contains a digitally reproduced copy of a physicalsignature.

Only approved principal designated school officials (PDSOs) and DSOs may physically sign or input their own digital signature to the Form I-20. Individuals who are not approved on the school’s Form I-17, “Petition for Approval of School for Attendance by Nonimmigrant Student,” may not input a DSO’s signature—either digital or physical—to the Form I-20. Improper issuance of the Form I-20 in this manner may constitute grounds for withdrawal of SEVP certification. By signing the Form I-20 or inputting their digital signature, PDSOs and DSOs attest that they are the approved individual issuing the Form I-20.SEVP continues to actively monitor COVID-19 and will provide up-to-date information with all stakeholders. Due to the fluid nature of this situation, please continue to reference ICE.gov/COVID19 for the latest news and updates. *Users should clear their browser history and refresh the page to ensure that they are viewing the latest version of the FAQs.
