ISS Check-In

Last updated December 20, 2023

International Student Services | New Student Information

As a new F-1 or J-1 student or returning F-1 student coming back from a leave of absence, you will have an "initial status" Form I-20 and SEVIS record. You must complete your Check-in with the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) after you arrive in the U.S. and enroll full-time in classes so we can register your SEVIS record and change it to "Active" status.

The OISS Check-In process requires you to upload photos or scans of the following documents for you, and any dependents (spouse or children) listed on your F-1 or J-1 immigration record, to your International Student & Scholar (ISS) Portal account. Completing your OISS Check-In serves to confirm that you have arrived in the U.S. and that you understand the rules and regulations you must follow to stay in status as an F-1 or J-1 student.

Before logging into your ISS Portal account, please gather the following documents/information:

  • Passport Biographical Page(s) (Required)
  • F-1 Visa Page (or Change of Status Approval Notice if applicable - Required)
  • Most Recent I-94 Arrival Record (not Travel History).
  • Dependent Documentation (Required, if applicable)
