Register for your classes during the Registration Period.
Give yourself enough time to complete ISSO Check-In, especially if you are returning to the U.S. after traveling.
To start your semester off smoothly, complete ISSO Check-In as soon as possible upon your arrival to the U.S.
3 Steps to Complete ISSO Check-In
Gather, scan and save your most recently issued visa documents into a file(s) on a USB or on your personal computer where you can readily access them.
Please see File Format Requirements for tips on how to save your file(s) in an acceptable format.
Find a secure Internet connection (anywhere on campus or wherever you can find a trusted secure connection) and submit the ISSO Online Check-In Form.
There is a section on the check-in form which requires you to upload your visa document file(s).
Check your Brandeis email inbox to verify that you received a Check-In confirmation email.
If you do not receive a confirmation email right away, that means your form was not successfully submitted.
If your check-in is incomplete for any reason after you submit the form, an ISSO staff member will contact your Brandeis email with instructions on how to complete your check-in.
After successfully submitting your Check-In form, the ISO Registration Hold placed on your Sage account will be removed by the end of the next business day, if your ISSO Check-In is complete.
THE ISSO REGISTRATION HOLD WILL NOT BE REMOVED UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR ISSO CHECK-IN.
