Readmission applies to students who have taken a leave of absence from Mahanaim due to medical leave, military duty, or other reasons. Students should begin the process to request an I-20 for readmission at least 3 months prior to the semester they wish to return.
If you have been outside of the United States for more than 5 months, you must request a new I-20 from Visa & Immigration Services and apply for a new M-1 visa. Be advised that you cannot re-enter the U.S. with your old Form I-20. You must apply for the new F-1 visa at the U.S. Consulate in your country and pay the $200 SEVIS fee online.
