Welcome to K-State!
When you arrive to Manhattan
You must report your arrival to Kansas State University with International Student and Scholar Services as required by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
To complete the reporting requirements and check-in with ISSS:
Have your immigration documents scanned and saved for uploading purposes. Documents include passport (pages with photo and expiration date), I-94 (https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home), I-20 or DS-2019.
Know the U.S. address where you will be currently staying at, even if it is a temporary address.
Complete the Check-In survey and upload the requested documents. You will then receive further information with a checklist of next steps.
