Fall 2016 Welcome and Orientation
Student Check-In Sessions
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. ISSS is located at 104 International Student Center, click here to see a map.
It is very important that you come to 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 ISSS for your check-in session. These documents include your passport, I-94 card (or electronic print-out), and I-20 or DS-2019. You will also be required to fill out an information sheet (given to you at the check-in session), on which you will need to provide the U.S. address where you will be living during your time at KSU.
Once you arrive at our office to check-in, we will make copies of your immigration documents and review the student checklist with you. This checklist 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 it is an important part of our check-in process.
Fall 2016 Welcome and Orientation will begin Monday, August 15, 2016 at 8:00am in 105 Umberger Hall.
In addition to our check-in session, you are REQUIRED to attend the International Student Orientation. During orientation, you will be given valuable information regarding immigration regulations, health care, and the English Language Program, as well as the various student services available at Kansas State University and the International Student and Scholar Services office.
*Please note that the International Student Orientation is DIFFERENT than the student check-in sessions. You are required to go to both.
