When a student is admitted to Baldwin Wallace, an acceptance letter and an Enrollment Agreement card will be mailed to the student. Upon receiving the Enrollment Agreement card from the student, Baldwin Wallace will issue an I-20 form for the student’s use in securing a visa from the nearest U.S. Consulate. Please note the additional $100 SEVIS fee listed on your I-20 for the overseas Visa process.
