F-1 students are allowed to bring their spouse and children to the U.S. after the information needed to create I-20 immigration documents for the dependent(s) is provided.
If you are bringing your dependent from a foreign country, please submit the following information:
- Current valid passport biographical page of the F-2 dependent
- Proof of funding of at least $4500 for your spouse and $2500 per child
- Marriage License
Once these have been submitted to the International Student Advisor, your I-20 will be updated with the dependent information and new I-20s will be created for yourself and the dependent(s). You will be contacted when the I-20s are available for pick up.
