Document Check-In

F-1 and J-1 students must “check-in.” If you have not previously done so, this is a chance for you to check-in by bringing your passport and your I-20 or DS-2019 Form to this session. Transfer students already in the U.S. are also required to attend a session to confirm their attendance to Montclair State University and to start the process of completing the transfer of their SEVIS record.

Registration not required. Please arrive before the start of the session, as you will not be allowed in after the session starts.

For your Document Check-in bring the following with you:

  • Passport
  • I-20 or DS-2019
  • Passports and I-20s or DS-2019s of any accompanying dependents
  • Letter from your sponsor if you are a sponsored student on F-1 status
  • Copies of all previous I-20s if you are a transfer student

During check-in copies will be made of the above documents and a student file will be created at IS. Information will also be provided on how to access your student account (WESS) and create a Montclair email account. We will end with a tour of the campus. IS staff members will be there to answer any other questions you may have.
