SEVIS Check-in

All new F-1 international students are required to report to ISSS within 15 days of their program start date. Failure to complete check-in may result in the termination of your SEVIS record and loss of your F-1 status. Please remember all students are also required to attend their assigned mandatory orientation.

To complete the SEVIS Check-in, you must report at the International Student and Scholar Services office after you have registered for classes.

You must bring in person the following documents with you:

  • Passport
  • Photocopy of the F-1 visa (Canadian citizens exempt)
  • STU I-20
  • Printed Form I-94 (accessible online)
  • Proof of class registration


You must also update your local (U.S. residential address) and permanent home country address in your student (MyBobcat) portal.
