I-20 Application

International F-1 Visa Program

Program policies and procedures 2020-2021 school year

Due to uncertainty regarding the coronavirus global pandemic, the District will accept I-20 applications for the 2020-2021 school year, but is not accepting payment at this time. We will resume standard operating practices for I-20 students when we receive definitive guidance from the Federal government and the US Department of Homeland Security.


Attendance in grades 9-12 of public schools is limited to a maximum of 12 months. Students are required to reimburse public secondary schools for the full unsubsidized per capita cost of education for the intended period of study.

Students are required to pay the $350 Remittance Fee to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Form I-901 which is included in the application packet.

All issuance of I-20 forms are done through the District Instruction Office. Please contact CJ Telles, designated school official (DSO), at 909-988-8511 ext. 2701 or at caroline.telles@cjuhsd.net.

Due to increased enrollment, Etiwanda, Los Osos and Rancho Cucamonga High Schools are projected to be beyond capacity for the 2020-2021 school year and therefore have been designated as Impacted Schools. Due to the impacted school status, those schools will not be accepting F1 Visa (I-20) students.

Applicants must provide the following documentation to be considered for admission:

  • Proof of age of student (i.e. passport - copy will do for initial I-20)
  • Proof of address of host parent (i.e gas/electric bill in CJUHSD attendance area)
  • I-20 CJUHSD Application (see form A)
  • Signed Parental Consent Form (see form B)
  • Report of Health Exam (see form C)
  • Tuberculosis Clearance Form (see form D)
  • Paid Tuition for the 2020-2021 school year - $13,695 for one year and $6,848 for one semester
  • Official school transcripts with English translation
    • Students applying for grade 12 must also include the following:
      • Number of hours spent in each course each term
      • The numerical score and/or letter grade earned in each course
      • Specific course/subject title for each letter grade

Length of Stay: Students enrolling in high school are allowed by Federal law to stay one year in public high school. The student must then either transfer to a private high school, enroll in college, or return home.
