Students can add immediate family members to their I-20 records, dependents can be a spouse (husband or wife) and/or children.
To add a dependent, please provide at least $4,000/year or $2,000/four months additional funding for a spouse and $3,000/year or $1,500/four months in additional funding per each child.
Once we have this funding and copies of each of their passports, we can issue a dependent I-20 that they can use to apply for F2 visas.
