Welcome to all Newly Admitted International Graduate Students at Dartmouth College

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:

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:

Important Note Regarding Immigration Check-in Requirement

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 as soon as possible following your arrival in the U.S.

In-Person Meeting

You will need to attend a SEVIS check-in 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 find the Fall 2017 schedule here. Please bring all your original documents with you to this in-person meeting.
