To meet reporting requirements & be able to register for classes, complete your International Student Check-in early.
All F-1 and J-1 students starting a new program at UB, transferring to UB from another U.S. university or entering the U.S. with an initial I-20/DS-2019 are required to complete the International Student Check-in. There are several steps involved so we recommend you begin as soon as possible.
You cannot access your International Student Check-in until you have activated your UBIT account. If you're having trouble activating your account, visit buffalo.edu/ubit/help for assistance.
ISS prioritizes e-form requests based on timing of submission and order of processing priority for the office. Find a list of e-form processing times for all ISS e-forms.
