Student Visa

International students must submit an I-20/DS-2019 Request Form, which will be available to download as of April 1, 2015. This form will be linked to your VIP page after you have accepted your offer of enrollment and paid your admission deposit (this is your Statement of Intent to Register, or SIR). UC Davis GSM students do this through an electronic enrollment form and payment of deposit. We will not be able to begin processing your documents until your enrollment reply and deposit have been received.

The forms for documenting your financial resources must be submitted to the Graduate School of Management with affidavits certifying the amount and availability of funds in United States dollars. SISS issues your I-20 or DS-2019 only after the GSM receives the forms and financial documentation. It can take several weeks to obtain a visa after UC Davis issues your I-20/DS-2019.

If you have any questions concerning your student visa, contact SISS at (530) 752-0864 or email them.

Step-By-Step Instructions for Obtaining Student Visa:

  1. Complete the Enrollment Reply Form online
  2. Pay the Admission Deposit
  3. Locate the Request for I-20/DS-2019 Request Form on your VIP page
  4. Fill out the form in its entirety
  5. Include all documents listed in the Section B Checklist
  6. Complete the Confidential Financial Statement
  7. Combine all forms, statements, and documents and email them to your program manager. See below.

Your program manager will check forms for completeness, then submit to SISS for processing. It will take SISS approximately 14 business days to create your I-20/DS-2019 from the day that they receive your complete application and paperwork.

If you have additional questions, please contact your program manager.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
