What to Bring

Immigration Documents

You must present your original immigration documents (DS-2019 and passport) at the Document Review session at orientation (see Document Review below for more information).

Other

There is no dress code for orientation. Because there is a lot of walking, we recommend wearing comfortable shoes. 
 

Submit the Document Review E-Forms

In preparation for orientation, upload the following documents to the Document Review e-forms in UA International (located under Orientation on the menu):

  • Page one of your signed DS-2019

  • Visa (if applicable)

  • I-94 or port of entry stamp

If you will arrive to the U.S. by Tuesday, January 1, 2019, submit the required Document Review e-forms to have your documents reviewed early. If there are no problems, we will send you an approval email to exempt you from attending the Document Review session at International Student Orientation.

If you do not submit the e-forms by January 1, or you do not receive the approval email, you are required to attend the Document Review session at orientation
