We are looking forward to welcoming to our community. Below you will find the next steps for starting the process to obtain your I-20.

  • After you accept our offer and deposit, you will receive an email requesting you to claim your VU NetID within a few days. The VU Net ID will be your username that identifies you to most computer-based systems at Vanderbilt.
  • Once you complete that process, you will receive an email from the International Students & Scholars Services (ISSS) at Vanderbilt with instructions on how to enter the International Students & Scholars Portal to start the process of applying for your I-20, the document you will need to apply for your F-1 student visa. It is in your best interest to start the process as soon as possible upon receiving the email from ISSS.
