E-form FAQs

Can I start an e-form and save without submitting to ISS?

Yes, you can save your e-form as a draft at any time prior to submitting. As long as you save a draft, you can come back and complete your request at a later time.

Please keep in mind that in order for ISS to start processing any request you must be sure to finish your e-form and click submit.

I see an error message when I try to submit an e-form. What should I do?

If you are unable to submit the e-form, double check that: 

  • Did you answer every question in the e-form?
    • Start at the top and work down. As you answer questions more options may appear that need to be answered.
  • Are you uploading a file?
    • Be sure it's saved as a .pdf, .jpeg, .jpg, or .png. 
    • It may be too large. Files larger than 2MB cannot be uploaded. 

I can't find a particular e-form that another student can see. Why is that?

Some e-forms are specific to a student's visa category or their enrollment status at UB. If you are an F-1 student you can only access e-forms for F-1 students. If you are a J-1 student, you can only access e-forms for J-1 students. Similarly, if you are currently on OPT you can access e-forms for OPT reporting. 

If you cannot find a specific e-form that you believe you should have access to, please contact us and let us know what you're looking to accomplish.
