International Students

Invitation Letter

Current F-1 and J-1 IIT international students can write an invitation letter for family members who might apply for a visa to enter the United States to attend Commencement. While invitation letters are not required for visa issuance, they can help facilitate the process.

An invitation letter template is available online with the International Center.

If you are studying at IIT in a status other than F-1 or J-1, you can write your own invitation letters for family members and friends. Include your name, date of birth, immigration status, major and degree level, that you are a student at IIT, the Commencement date, and your family members' and friends' names and birth dates.

Please visit the International Center website for more information.
