Verification of Lawful Presence for International Students
Students living outside of the United States, receiving a University scholarship or fellowship, and enrolling remotely in Main Campus classes must verify their lawful presence in their current country of residence. If you will be entering the U.S. in F-1 or J-1 status for Spring 2021, you do not need to take action. After entering the U.S. and completing Document Review, International Student Services will verify your lawful presence.
Review the Attestation of International Lawful Presence and identify documentation demonstrating lawful presence in your current country of residence.
