|Letter Request Forms|
|Invitation and Status letters|| As of Wednesday 03/02/2011, The Office for International Students and Scholars has decided to stop issuing the following letters:
Status letters: You can print an Enrollment Verification Certificate directly from your UDSIS student page and bring it to our office so we can add a "University of Delaware International Services" seal. This letter along with a copy of your I-20 or DS-2019 should suffice in proving your status.
Invitation letters: These letters are not required by the embassy to issue a B1/B2 visa. The Student/Scholar should submit a copy of their I-20/or DS2019 to the relative applying for the tourist visa. You can also send an Enrollment Verification Certificate along with the copy of the I-20/DS-2019.
|Other Letter Requests (Online)|| Use this form if you need any other letters
* Enrollment Verification Certificates can be printed online from your UDSIS page *
** For funding letters, please contact your Department **
|Special International Group Forms (For UD Departments)|
|Application for New Special International Program||
Departments and Program Sponsors should use this packet to request an OISS consultation before marketing special international group programs. The information in this packet will help you understand the different visa types, and the application will help our office select the most appropriate eligibility document for your program participants.
Please note that this is not a University approval for hosting special programs. You may still need to gain approval from and collaborate with other University departments. Our hope is that this information, as well as the guidance you receive from our office will help you build an outline for a sustainable international program.
