After you arrive in the U.S., you must scan and submit your documents using the ISSS Check-in: Document Check form in MyISSS. To avoid complications and delays, you should ensure the text on your documents is legible and the complete document is visible in the scanned image.
The documents you will need to submit include:
- Your I-20 or DS-2019
- Passport biographical page
- F-1 or J-1 visa (except citizens of Canada)
- Most recent I-94 record of entry to the U.S. (you will receive this when you enter the United States)
- You cannot upload your documents until you arrive in the U.S. because you will receive your most recent I-94 record when you enter the country. To avoid complications when registering for classes, you should upload your documents as soon as possible after you receive your I-94 record.
You will then need to complete an ISSS Check-in and Welcome Online Session. You will access this through a link on the “ISSS Check-in: Document Check” form in MyISSS. This online session will contain important information and action items you will need to complete before you begin classes.
Please note: The International Student Preparation Course and the ISSS Check-in and Welcome Online Session are separate online items, and your AI registration hold will not be permanently removed until you complete both courses.
