ESO Workshop Descriptions
Students receive a copy of their class schedule during ESO once the placement tests have been completed. Students are encouraged to meet with the ELI Coordinator or the Operations Support Specialist if they have any questions. Below are descriptions of international workshops and activities.
SEVIS Check in
The new international students meet with the Office of Research Support and International Affairs official who will review their passports and I-20 forms or DS2019 forms. The international students will fill out three agreement forms required for their F-1 or J-1 visas. When the paperwork is approved, the official will then update SEVIS to an active student status on behalf of the student.
The SEVIS Workshop is required for all international students. The F-1 and J-1 visa policies of Homeland Security and the Department of State are explained in depth.
