Our website contains a wealth of information regarding your visa application, and immigration status in the U.S., and other services we can provide to help you once you arrive at Dartmouth College. Note, most of the information below assumes that you are outside the U.S., and will apply for a student visa before entering the U.S. to begin your academic program.
If you are currently attending school and will need to transfer your immigration status to Dartmouth, click here: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~ovis/updates/f1/transfers.html
If you are currently in the U.S. in a different immigration status, and you want to apply to change your immigration status from within the U.S. instead of leaving to apply for a new visa, click here: http://www.dartmouth.edu/~ovis/whoweserve/cos.html.
Please click on any of the links at the side of the page for more detailed information on other topics, or click on the following links for more information on our immigration services and benefits for newly admitted F-1 or J-1 students.
The U.S. government requires all international students to check-in with the immigration office at the school or institution serving as their visa sponsor.
IMPORTANT: As a non-U.S. citizen, you must complete an immigration check in form, and an online orientation session, as soon as possible following your arrival in the U.S.
STEP 1: Immigration Check-in Form
The Immigration Check-in Form is online. Please click on the link below to access the form *after* you arrive in the U.S., and before you come to the Visa Services Office for your immigration check in appointment:
New International Student Online Check in Form:
STEP 2: Immigration Orientation Session
Once you complete the online check in form, you will receive an auto-email, with a link to your online immigration session. If you choose to NOT complete the online orientation, you must contact our office to schedule an in person session.
STEP 3: In-Person Meeting
Finally, you will need to have a brief meeting with your immigration advisor. If you are arriving for Fall term, we will schedule a group meeting and email you with the date and time. Please bring all your original documents with you to this in-person meeting. If you have completed Steps 1 and 2, this meeting should only take a few minutes.
For more information on the required Immigration check-in process, please contact OVIS at Visa.and.Immigration.Services@dartmouth.edu.
