Initial Immigration Check-in


After you attend the in-person orientation, ISSS needs to verify your personal information and receive your most up-to-date passport, visa, I-94, and signed I-20 in order to report to Homeland Security that you are on campus.

Before starting, make sure to verify that your US address is added to Workday.
