After you arrive in the USA, you must scan and submit your documents using the “ISSS Check-in: Document Check” form in MyISSS. These documents include:

  • Your I-20 or DS-2019
  • Passport biographical page
  • F-1 or J-1 visa (except citizens of Canada)
  • I-94 record of entry to the USA (you will receive this when you enter the United States)

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. This online session will contain important information and action items you will need to complete before you begin classes.
