International Student Welcome

Now that you have paid your I-901 SEVIS Fee, applied for your visa, and you're about to arrive at SCU, it's time to look forward to International Student Welcome (ISW) and Immigration Check-in!

During ISW you will meet the ISS Team as well as other new and continuing international students. You will complete required immigration check-in, and learn about immigration rules and campus resources.

Participation is required for all international students who have been issued an F-1 I-20 or J-1 DS-2019.

Participation is recommended for Global Nomad students (U.S. citizens and green card holders who grew up or attended high school abroad).
