Mandatory International Student Check-In – Important Reminders!

**Remember when entering the U.S.: Students should show their F-1 visa and I-20 when they enter the US (also their SEVIS fee receipt). Do not enter on the tourist visa of your parent or guardian at the airport.**

REMINDER: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security requires all international students with a J-1 or F-1 visa to report their arrival at NYU to the Office of Global Services (OGS).  OGS will host a check-in to help you meet this requirement. Check-in will take place on Monday, July 9th at 5:30pm at the Tisch School of the Arts, 721 Broadway, 12th Floor, Dean’s Conference Room (conference room at the end of the long hallway; when entering 721 Broadway, use elevators to your right to easily reach the Dean’s Conference Room on the 12th Floor).

All international students must attend and should arrive at least 15 minutes in advance.

Required documents to bring to check-in:

  • Passport
  • I-94 record
    • Print-out of electronic I-94 record/Paper I-94 card
    • Or print-out of “Not found” page from
