Check-In Procedures

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regulations require that you check in with International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) upon your arrival to Kansas State University. The ISSS is located at the corner of Mid-Campus and Claflin Drive.

It is very important that you come to the ISSS to check in so that we know you have arrived on campus. Please be sure to bring ALL your immigration documents with you when you come to the ISSS for your check-in session. These documents include your passport, I-94 card or electronic print-out and I-20 or DS-2019.

Once you arrive at our office to check-in we will make copies of your immigration documents and review the student check-in list with you. This check-list includes information on obtaining your student I.D. card, English Language Program testing, and information about TB testing, as well as other important information and is an important part of our check-in process.
