Upon arrival, as a new or transfer F-1 and J-1 student or scholar, you are required to report your arrival to ASU ISSC.
Upon arrival to the U.S. (or arrival to ASU for SEVIS transfer students), you must complete the mandatory online SEVIS check-in. You will find the link to the eForm in My ASU under Priority Tasks. You do not need to report your arrival in-person.
You should arrive to the U.S. and ASU no later than the start date listed on your ASU I-20 or DS-2019.
1. Gather your immigration documents. Here's what you'll need:
2. Log in to My ASU and click on 'Complete SEVIS Check-in' under your Priority Tasks. Read and follow the instructions.
3. Submit the eForm. After submitting the eForm, do not cancel the eForm. Simply close the browser by clicking the 'X' button.
You will receive email confirmation of your eForm submission.
When your eForm status shows approved in My ASU, we have completed your SEVIS Registration to activate your SEVIS record. You will receive an email when your continued attendance I-20 is ready to be picked up from ASU ISSC.
Sign and date your new I-20. This is now your most current I-20 to use for travel. Be sure to put your previous I-20 in a safe place. You are required to keep all of your original I-20s for your records.
After your arrival, attend a SEVIS Check-In/Orientation session as soon as possible. Sessions are held Monday-Thursday at 2 p.m. and Friday at 10 a.m. Typically, SEVIS Check-in lasts for about 30 minutes to one hour. Please call 480-727-7125 or email InternationalScholars@asu.edu to schedule your SEVIS Check-In/Orientation.
SEVIS Check-In/Orientation are conducted in a group setting, so please be on time for your appointment and have all of your documents with you.
You will need to bring the original and a copy of each document listed below, to your orientation session, for you and any accompanying J-2 dependents:
Passport(s) (must show visa and entry stamps)
I-94 Arrival/Departure Record(s)
Proof of insurance. Must meet U.S. Department of State requirements.
Please also include your local U.S. address, local phone number and email address.
J-2 dependents need not accompany you to the check-in, as we have limited space.
