I am traveling today but did not attend any of the Travel Advisory Workshop?
In the event that a student does not attend the scheduled MANDATORY travel Advisory sessions, and needs to sign their I-20 for travel when the PDSO/DSOs are not available, the signed I-20 will be mailed to the student’s home country address via DHL and the charges placed on the student’s Banner account.
Can I still use my expired visa to travel to Canada, Mexico or one of the islands (except Cuba)?
Yes, please refer to travel to Canada, Mexico and Adjacent Islands.
What do I do if I travel without my I-20 or DS-2019?

Can I travel outside the U.S. during the “Grace Period”?
