Arizona State University's International Students and Scholars Center warmly welcomes you to the Sun Devil family! As you prepare for your journey to the U.S., it's essential to complete your registration in SEVIS to confirm your student status with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

According to our records, you were issued an I-20 or DS-2019 from ASU with a program start date of May 16, 2024. Upon your arrival, you must complete the SEVIS New Student Check-in if you fall into any of the following categories:

  • First-time student
  • Student returning from a semester or more away
  • Student transferring from Global Launch
  • Student transferring from another school
  • Student transitioning from an online degree program to an in-person program

If you are able to arrive at ASU and begin the summer 2024 semester by the program start date listed on your I-20 or DS-2019, we want to remind you that this important immigration regulation must be completed by the first day of classes, May 16, 2024.

Once you've arrived in the U.S., you can complete your SEVIS Check-in by May 16, 2024, using your smartphone or computer. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Upload copies of your immigration documents by logging in to My ASU and clicking on Complete SEVIS Check-in under Priority Tasks.
  2. Update your phone number, local U.S. address, and SEVIS (home country) address in My ASU by clicking the Profile tab.
  3. Enroll full timePlease be aware that you must maintain in-person credits throughout the entire summer semester, either during session C or a combination of sessions A and B. You CANNOT enroll in only session A or B. If you have difficulties finding classes, please contact your academic advising department listed in My ASU for assistance.
  4. Attend the mandatory New International Student Welcome on Wednesday, May 15, 2024 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Arizona time). Please register no later than May 12. Upon registration, you'll receive a confirmation email containing event details..

Failure to complete SEVIS Check-in upon your arrival to the U.S. may result in the loss of your F-1 or J-1 status and termination of your SEVIS record.

J-1 students whose DS-2019s were issued by institutions outside of ASU, such as IIE-Fulbright, LASPAU and AMIDEAST, must report to the officer who signed their DS-2019 for SEVIS program validation.
