Important Message

F-1 international students traveling  to the U.S. with an initial I-20 must be enrolled in at least one partially in-person or fully in-person course in order to enter and stay in the U.S. This is required by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP).

The International Student Office is available to assist you:

Need to speak with an advisor?

  • Advising appointments: Schedule a 15 minute Zoom advising appointments online. Appointments are currently available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. A Zoom link will be emailed to your InSite email address the morning of your scheduled meeting.  
  • Drop-in advising for below unit authorizations: You may be eligible for a reduced course load authorization (below units) if you plan to drop below 12 units during either your first semester in the U.S. or final semester in completing your program of study. ISO offers quick, 5-minute drop-in advising sessions for students who meet this eligibility criteria and are seeking authorization to drop below 12 units.
