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.

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 International Services (IS). Information will also be provided on how to access your student account (WESS) and create a Montclair email account. We will end with an optional tour of the campus. IS staff members will be there to answer any other questions you may have.
