SEVIS Check-In

It is important to check in with OISA each semester that you will be an active student at Wesleyan University.

At the beginning of each semester (and no later than 10 days after classes start), students should check in with OISA through their International Student and Scholar (ISS) Portal account. OISA will use the information submitted to register your SEVIS record each semester.

Before making this request, please gather the following documents/information:

  • Most Recent I-94 Record (Required)
  • Proof of Change of Status (if applicable)
  • New Passport (if applicable)
  • New F-1 Visa (if applicable)
  • Current Personal and Emergency Contact Information (Required)

Log in to your ISS Portal account by clicking on LOGIN at the top right corner of the page. Use your Wesleyan credentials to log in.

Once logged in, click on the gray house icon located at the left side of the black navigation bar. Select Site Home from the drop-down menu. You will be redirected to the ISS Portal main page.

Select F-1 Student Requests from the menu on the left side of the page, then click on SEVIS Check-In for Continuing  F-1 Students from the menu choices on the next page. You will then be asked to select the term that you are checking in for.

Make sure to carefully review the Announcements and Instructions sections on the page that you are redirected to.

In order to provide OISA with the information needed to complete your check-in process with the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS), you will need to complete the following sections and requests:

Attached Documents: You will be asked to attach a scan of your most recent I-94 Record. To obtain your most recent I-94 Record, please visit U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)’s website.

Signature Documents: This section will ask you to review and digitally sign documents with important information that indicate your understanding. Please be aware that these are legal documents. Please contact OISA if you have any questions before clicking the buttons to digitally sign these documents.

Assessments: In this section, you will take a quiz to show that you understand how to stay in status as an F-1 student. You are allowed to take this assessment 2 times and your final score will be the highest score you receive. Your final score must be at least 90% in order to complete this assessment.

Questionnaire: Please complete each of the questionnaires in this section. If the questionnaire does not apply to you, such as “Have you recently changed to another status?” respond by selecting “no.”

You will be asked to input information about your current semester as well as your current personal and emergency contact information.

If you have renewed your Passport or F-1 Visa, please upload copies of these documents. If you have changed your status, upload proof of your Change of Status.

You can click the save button at the bottom of the form to save your answers as you go along but make sure you click the submit button to submit the information to your request.

When you have completed all of the sections, click the submit button at the top of the page to complete your SEVIS Check-In for Continuing F-1 Students.

If you start a request in the ISS Portal but are unable to complete it, you may return to this request at a later time. Do not start a new one. To return to an existing request, please go to your ISS Portal User Home Page.
