ISSO Check-In

Immigration regulations require that all universities and schools enrolling international students (students who hold non-immigrant visas) provide updated information to the federal government at the start of each semester.

To comply with these federally mandated requirements, the ISSO requires that all incoming international students complete ISSO check-in at the beginning of their first semester after they arrive in the U.S. Failure to check in could result in delays with class registration, possible loss of your legal visa status in the U.S. and possible withdrawal from the university. The check-in will be available beginning 30 days before your program start date.

Please note that continuing students do not need to complete ISSO check-in at the start of each term. However, please be sure to report any changes to your address in the ISSO Portal within 10 days of the change.

To complete your check-in, log into your ISSO Portal using the button in the sidebar.

For questions about the check-in process, please email the ISSO.

How to Complete ISSO Check-in

Before completing your check-in, you should first verify that you are enrolled in a full-time course load (12 credits). Only one online course may count toward the 12 credit minimum. Please note the ISSO cannot complete your SEVIS Registration/Validation until you are enrolled in at least 12 credits. 

Providing false or inaccurate information, including submitting the check-in form while outside of the U.S. or submitting outdated visa document scans, may result in a referral to the Department of Student Rights and Community Standards to face disciplinary sanctions and a possible loss of your legal visa status.

Note: If your original visa documents are lost or stolen, you must contact the ISSO immediately to request assistance with replacing your documents.
