Immigration Check-In

Please complete your online check-in as early as you can after you physically arrive in the U.S. within the 30-day arrival window! 

Note: F-1 SEVIS Transfer Students are not subject to the 30 day arrival limitation

  • The U.S. government requires all F-1 and J-1 students to officially “check-in” with your University when you begin a new program of study in the U.S.
  • No appointment or meeting is required — check-in is 100% online
  • Incomplete check-ins endanger your visa status. The ISSO will put a hold on your university account if this process is not done correctly.
