International Student & Scholar Check-In

Mandatory Check-In Requirement

Federal regulation requires that every international student with F-1 or J-1 status and all scholars complete a check-in with the Office of International Students & Scholars (OISS) upon arrival at Wayne State.

This is to collect necessary documents and information and to verify your immigration status.

It is important to note that failure to complete the check-in process will result in the termination of your F-1 or J-1 status.
