Immigration Responsibilities

Protecting your immigration status is one of your most important responsibilities as an international student. The advisors in International Student & Scholar Services are here to help you educate yourself about your rights and responsibilities.

Required Online Immigration Check-In

F-1 and J-1 students must verify and update their student records and make sure the information ISSS is required to send to the Department of Homeland Security each semester is correct. Not completing check-in places your immigration status in jeopardy. This check-in must be completed at the start of every semester.

Read the instructions for online immigration check-in.
