It is highly recommended that you first scan your documents prior to filling out the Check-In form.
This is so that you will have your scanned visa doc files saved and ready to upload to the online Check-In form.
You will NOT be able to successfully submit the form unless you scan and upload your visa documents to it. (Exception: students on approved study abroad programs)
List of Required Visa Docs
You have 2 scanning options:
a. Scan and upload visa documents as 1 file
b. Scan and upload visa documents as separate individual files (scan and upload visa docs as listed below)
Scanners and computers are available for use at Goldfarb Library. Take a look at the Scanning Instructions (PDF) for the Goldfarb scanners.
The following is a list of the visa documents you are required to scan and upload to the Check-In form:
