Immigration Document Review Sessions

All new international students must complete a mandatory Immigration Document Review. We will offer sessions throughout July and early August for those who arrive early. There will also be opportunities during orientation week, and we will have some make-up sessions after orientation for anyone who arrives late. If unable to attend, please sign up for Make Up Orientation (link will be available soon) where you will also be able to complete an Immigration Document Review. Failure to complete this requirement will result in serious immigration consequences.

What: The International Student & Scholar Services office will scan your immigration documents for tracking in the SEVIS system, run by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
