Immigration Process

International Services Specialists in International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) handle the immigration process for international students. ISSS will issue an immigration document (Form I-20 or Form DS-2019) to you, if applicable, only after you have confirmed your acceptance and submitted the Immigration Clearance Form (see below).

You will be contacted within five (5) business days of receiving your decision letter and will need to provide:

Proof of Financial Support: You will have an opportunity to provide ISSS with your proof of financial support when you complete the online Immigration Clearance Form that your International Services Specialist will send to you.

Passport/Visa Information: You will need to provide this information to ISSS through the immigration clearance form as well.

Note: International students living outside of the U.S. will need to provide a copy of their passport, if it has not already been sent. Those living in the U.S. should be prepared to submit a copy of their passport, visa, Form I-94 Arrival/Departure Record and Form I-20, Form DS-2019, or Form I-797 (if applicable). In all correspondence, please use your name as it appears on your passport.
