Scholar Orientation

All scholars are required to check in with the International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO). Scholar orientation normally takes place during the check-in appointment. As a scholar you will complete a Scholar Information Form and copies of your immigration documents will be made. You will also receive an informative Welcome Packet. The check-in process must be completed prior to beginning employment on-campus.

Please make sure to bring the following documents to your check-in appointment:

  1. Passport/Visa
  2. Form DS-2019
  3. Health insurance benefits and coverage information (if purchased prior to entry to the US)
  4. I-94 (Admission/Departure Form)

If you have a dependent spouse and/or minor child(ren) who traveled to the United States with you, you must also present their documents as listed above. An appointment must be scheduled with an ISSO Advisor to assist with your check in process. The sponsoring department can schedule a check in appointment on behalf of the Scholar prior to your arrival at 334-7551.
