International Check-In

When students first arrive, they are required to report to the University before the start date listed on their I-20. Students arriving after this date may not be granted admission to the United States.

The Check-In process will complete your admission to Southern Utah University, and ensure compliance with immigration requirements.

During the Check-In process, students will review their information with the school and complete the steps necessary to ensure compliance with immigration requirements. Students will also be provided a schedule for arrival week services and activities that will help students adjust to their new home.

New Student Check-In - This checklist will help students plan for their check-in.

Copy Immigration Documents

Submitting copies of immigration documents is an important step in maintaining the student visa in good standing. Students will need to bring the following documents to Check-In with them:

  • Stamped I-20
  • I-94
    • If a paper I-94 was received.
  • Passport
  • Visa

Immigration documents are VERY important. Students should keep these in a safe place in their apartment, replacing any of the above documents will carry a financial cost and may require several weeks before you receive a replacement.
