Every semester you will be expected to complete the SEVIS check-in and registration. You will receive an email shortly after classes begin with instructions regarding your check-in & registration. It is important to know this procedure is part of maintaining valid F-1 status and failure to do so can result in the termination of your status. During the check-in & registration session, you will review F-1 rules and regulations, provide photocopies of your immigration documents and receive the travel endorsement signature. You must bring the following to your check-in appointment:

  • Your passport
  • Your original I-20
  • Electronic I-94 form
