In addition to our first-year and transfer checklists, international students should familiarize themselves with these next steps.
Apply for Your I-20
All undergraduate immigration documents will be issued by International Student Services (ISS).
Please contact ISS directly for any immigration, I-20s, or Terra Dotta related question.
All I-20 or DS-2019 requests must be submitted through the Terra Dotta portal via MyUW, which will be your student immigration portal during your time as an F-1 or J-1 student at UW–Madison.
You must accept your offer of admission in your Student Center before you can set up your Terra Dotta account.
Please allow 24 hours after accepting your offer of admission before setting up your Terra Dotta account.
Detailed instructions on how to request your immigration documents can be found on ISS’s new student page.
Note: Visa processing can take a significant amount of time, so please plan accordingly.
