Summer International Student Check-In

Primary tabs

International student advisors will be available during this time so that international students beginning a new academic program at Georgia Tech in summer 2015 can complete international student check-in. After you have completed check-in, OIE will be able to remove your registration hold and you'll be able to register for classes.

International student advisors are available from 8:30-11:30 am and 1:30-4:30 pm.

International student check-in has many steps, many of which you can do before coming to OIE.

  1. Upload a copy of your F-1 / J-1 Visa into iStart (you can do this from home!).
  2. Upload a copy of your I-20 / DS-2019 into iStart (you can do this from home!).
  3. Upload I-94 documentation into iStart. If you were issued a paper I-94 by Customs and Border Protection, upload copies of the front and back of the paper I-94. If you have an electronic I-94 record, you will use your biographical and arrival information to access and print their electronic I-94 from the Customs and Border Protection I-94 Admission Retrieval website. Print the record and upload it to iStart.
  • Read and Electronically “Sign” the student compliance form. A copy of the form will be emailed to you after you sign. The F-1 compliance form is also available on OIE’s website here.  The J-1 compliance form can be found here.
