Orientation and immigration check in is required for all international students. All students must register for an orientation and check in session here: REGISTRATION PAGE.
The mandatory immigration check in is required for students to activate their F-1 or J-1 status.
For international check in, you must bring the following:
- Your passport;
- F-1 I-20 or J-1 DS-2019;
- I-94 Arrival/Departure Record (note: only accessible after arrival to the U.S.); and
- Any other immigration documents you have.

During check-in, we will gather your immigration documents to make copies for our files while we go over some basic immigration information.
