Returning International Students
Curricular Practical Training (CPT)
Optional Practical Training
Upon Arrival to Campus
Report to the CIE with your passport and visa documents immediately upon your return in order to have your F-1 status validated.
U.S. immigration law requires us to report your arrival on campus, verify your status, and update copies of your visa documents for our records.
Report to your academic department to inform them of your arrival. You will not be able to register until you have notified both your department and the CIE of your return. Failure to report to the CIE will result in termination of your F status.
Note: You will have to spend at least one academic year in F-1 status prior to applying for practical training permission.
