Step 4 | Report To School After U.S. Entry

Before you apply for your Form I-20 AFTER ENTERING THE UNITED STATES!
Report to the International Student & Scholar Office within 5-6 days of U.S. arrival to validate F-1 Non-Immigrant Status.

Congratulations and welcome, or welcome back, to Lehman College!

To activate your F-1 student record in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS):

1. You will need to come to the International Student and Scholar Office (ISSO) office within 5 to 6 days of your arrival.

This is very important as we will need to activate your record.
Note: Your record cannot be activated unless you report to school.

Bring the following to our office:

- Your Passport
- Your I-20 Form
- Your I-94 arrival/departure record (follow this link to print a copy).
- Your current address
- Form I-515A (ONLY if you were given this form by an immigration officer at the port of entry)

2. Participate in a mandatory orientation session on your F-1 regulations and obligations. Please check your email for upcoming dates and times.

Maintain Your J-1 Status
