Every semester :

Come to the Office of International Student Services to make sure your SEVIS record is updated. It is important that you do this as soon as possible at the beginning of each semester, or you might become out-of-status. Before the end of a semester, you will be able to register for the next semester’s classes. You will need to see your academic advisor to receive your PIN and discuss what you want to do, then use FELiX to register. Make sure you have at least 12 hours (full-time).

 

If you have a hold on your account :

Log into myCampus. In the right column, there should be a box showing your account issues from FELiX. It will tell you if and why you have holds on your account.

High school transcript – You must have your high school submit an original, official copy of your transcript. If it’s in a language other than English, it must be officially translated.

Financial Aid – Submit a copy of your bank statement, or if someone else is supporting you, ask them to fill out a financial guarantee.

ACT/SAT score – schedule your exam and take it, it would take a time. If you have TOEFL score, you don’t need to get high score on the exam. Please refer the admission page.

TOEFL score – You need to contact ETS and request that they send a copy of your TOEFL scores to us. These score reports will not be free. If you took the internet-based TOEFL, you may request score reports online at the TOEFL iBT registration site. If you took the paper-based TOEFL, you must call ETS at 1-609-771-7267 and request another score report.

 

If you are planning to leave the U.S. :

If you are planning to return to your home country for a vacation or any purpose, you need to make sure your I-20 will remain valid until after you have returned. If it will not expire, you may go ahead. However, if the date has expired or will expire while you are on vacation, you need to come to the International Student Office and receive special permission.

Please plan ahead and take sufficient time.

 

If you have dependant(s) to bring :

You need to include them on your I-20, so make sure their information when you apply for University.

Please refer F-Dependant page.
