Updating I-20

F-1 students must keep their I-20 current and up-to-date at all times during their stay at UCLA. Changes to your program (major/academic program or source of funding) or changes to your biological information (name or citizenship) must be reported to DCISS and you must submit an I-20 Request to obtain an updated I-20.

Change of Major

If you have officially changed your major (reflected in URSA), then you must request for an updated I-20. Please complete and submit the I-20 Request form to DCISS (no appointment required). Your updated I-20 stating your new major will be ready for pick up 5 business days after the date of submission.

Change of Funding

Please obtain new proof of funding, complete the I-20 Request form, and submit both documents to DCISS (no appointment required). Your updated I-20 stating your new source of funding will be ready for pick up 5 business days after the date of submission.
