Return to WSU after a Leave of Absence

We look forward to having you back on campus in Minnesota to continue your studies at WSU.

Follow these steps to complete the process for returning to campus.


Complete an Intent to Return Form on the Registrars website

Complete an Intent to Return Form.

If you are returning following academic suspension you must also complete the Suspension Re-Entry Form and contact the Warrior Success Center.

Apply for a New I-20

Email the following to ISSS at

  • A copy of the first page of your passport, which must be valid for at least six months into the future
  • A bank statement that shows that you have sufficient funds to support your studies for one academic year

Pay for Courier Delivery

WSU cannot pay for your I-20 to be shipped to you. We strongly recommend that you pay for courier delivery from University Express Mail Services.


Pay a New SEVIS Fee

You can pay the SEVIS fee after you receive your new I-20 because you need the new SEVIS number.


Apply for a New F-1 Visa

If your current visa has expired, you will need to complete a new F1 visa application.


Register for Classes

You may need to reset your StarID password in order to access e-Services and WSU email.
