Check In and Orientation

Step 1: Mandatory ISO Immigration Check In

All new international students holding all non-immigrant statuses are required to check in with ISO. This process can be initiated before you arrive but cannot be completed until after U.S. entry. Completion of this mandatory process is necessary in order to activate your legal status in the U.S..

As part of the online immigration check in, students are required to:

  • Upload
    • Your passport with your visa stamp
    • Your I-94 Admission Number (upload after your U.S. arrival)
    • Your Forms I-20, DS-2019 or I-797
      • Any receipt notices (Forms I-797C) for applications to change or extend status
  • Complete the online orientation presentation and assessment
  • Update personal contact information

Failure to submit your documents to ISO will result in a block on your university registration and may potentially result in a loss of your legal status in the U.S.
