All new students are required to attend their respective orientation program, as well as check in at OISS within 15 days of arrival in the U.S. Make your travel plans accordingly.
Please note that failure to attend both the international orientation and an immigration check-in with OISS will result in a hold being placed on your student record and may affect your immigration status.
2018 International Mandatory Spring Orientation â€“ Friday, January 11, 2018, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m. in Sewall Hall 307.
All new international students must have formally checked in with OISS by the first week of classes. For the check-in process, students must bring originals and copies of all immigration documents -- passport, visa, I-94, and I-20/DS-2019 or other relevant immigration document. Copies (free to you) may also be made at OISS prior to your check-in. Check-ins will be in OISS, Lovett Hall, Entrance A, Room 201.
Students will be asked to complete OISS's Check-in Form and meet with an advisor. During the check-in process, the OISS advisor will verify the immigration documents, provide general information and immigration compliance reminders. The advisor will also go over the Check-In Checklist to help you complete your set-up on campus.
Check-in appointments are available in January daily at 2:00 p.m. Scheduling in advance is recommended.
