Walden processes completed Form I-20 applications as quickly as possible while ensuring compliance with US Department of State and the Student Exchange and Visitor Program policies and regulations. The time to process each application varies based on individual circumstances. Because Walden processes hundreds of applications each year, it is not possible to give individual students priority over other students.
We strongly recommend all international students begin their Form I-20 and F-1 student visa process 3-4 months prior to their intended residency start date to ensure they have enough time to obtain all required documentation and complete all required processes.
Please see the attached website for complete information about the process for international students attending residencies in the U.S.
