Visa Instructions for New F-1 Degree Students

Welcome to Cal Poly!
 

After you accept your offer for admission, you will receive an email invitation from intlservices@calpoly.edu, inviting you to log into the International Student hub. There, you will provide information and documents that the International Students and Scholars office needs to issue your I-20.  If you have accepted your offer and you have not received the email, please contact us at intlservices@calpoly.edu. All applicants must accept their offer for admission before Cal Poly can issue an I-20 and acceptance letter.
