What is the last date that Portland State can issue my I-20 if I am living outside of the United States?

Each situation is different, but these are some things to keep in mind:

  • You must be admitted before Portland State can issue an I-20. The admissions process can take six to eight weeks, with additional time to mail documents to you.
  • Once you receive the I-20, you must apply for and receive your visa, which can be another lengthy process. For information on the visa process, please contact the United States Embassy in your country.

Portland State encourages you to apply as early as possible to allow sufficient time to complete both processes.
