Immigration Document Upload

As a new student, you are required to upload your immigration documents electronically. If your immigration documents are not uploaded, then the ISSS will be unable to process your Spring 2017 registration in SEVIS. If you are not registered in SEVIS for the Spring 2017 semester, your immigration status may be at risk.

It is essential that you complete the following steps to upload your immigration documents.

You must create electronic files of your passport, visa and I-20/DS-2019 documents to be uploaded. Note that only PDF or image files (JPG, JPEG, GIFF, PNG) can be uploaded (PDF format is recommended). Be sure to sign your I-20/DS-2019 before creating the file. To view samples, click here.

Scanners are available in the University libraries for student use. Click here for more information.
