OISS continues to provide services online. For more information, visit the OISS Coronavirus FAQ page.
All new scholars on any non-immigrant status are required to attend a check-in and orientation with OISS before or on their first day of employment at Rice University.
Upon check-in, OISS will make copies of your immigration documents (i.e. your passport, visa, I-94, and signed DS-2019 or other relevant immigration document or EAD card). You will also 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 immigration compliance reminders, and go over general information to help you complete your set-up on campus.
Contact OISS to schedule your orientation & check-in appointment.
