If you’re in F-1 status at Columbia as a student or on OPT after July 1, 2016, make sure you have the correct version of the I-20 when you travel. DHS implemented a new format I-20 on June 29, 2015 which must be used as of July 1, 2016.
Check the bottom left-corner of your I-20. "ICE Form I-20 (3/31/2018)" should be printed there.
Student Financial Services (SFS) advises that As of November 1, 2016, the University will no longer accept cash payments for student accounts. You can pay your tuition and other charges by check, wire, e-payment, Western Union, and money order. Get prepared for November 1st and learn more about your payment options. New students can open a U.S. bank account soon after arrival. See information at Your First Week.
