  • Bring your I-20 or DS-2019, passport, and I-94 printout. If you have dependents with you, bring their documents also.
  • Complete the Contact Information form prior to arriving for check-in. This address should be your current address in the U.S. (temporary addresses such as hotels or hostels are acceptable). Once permanent address has been established please update the form.
