Returning After a Leave of Absence

Welcome back to WSU! Follow these steps to complete the process for returning to campus and continuing your studies. 

Complete the Intent to Return Form

Complete an Intent to Return form to re-enroll at WSU

If you are returning following academic suspension you must also complete the Suspension Re-Entry Form and contact the Warrior Success Center. 

Apply for a New I-20

Email the following to ISSS at

  • A copy of the first page of your passport, which must be valid for at least six months into the future  
  • A bank statement that shows that you have sufficient funds to support your studies for one academic year  

WSU cannot pay for your I-20 to be shipped to you. We strongly recommend that you pay for courier delivery from University Express Mail Services.

Pay a New SEVIS Fee

You can pay the SEVIS fee after you receive your new I-20 because you need the new SEVIS number.

If your current visa has expired, you will need to complete a new F1 visa application
