Obtaining an Initial Document
International Students wishing to attend Governors State University must first complete an online application. The application process will require all of the documentation that domestic applicants must submit, based on their program, in addition to the following materials:
If you have questions about the application process, please contact the Office of International Services.
Once you have been admitted to the university, then you will work with the Office of International Services to obtain your I-20 (F-1 Students) or DS-2019 (J-1 Students). We cannot issue your immigration document until you have been accepted by the university and we have been notified of your acceptance. Once your document is created, it will be mailed to you using FedEx or UPS.
