Guides and Forms

Our Guides and Forms are now located in the new ISSS Student & Scholar Portal!

This portal offers our students and scholars help in navigating their immigration status. In the ISSS Portal, you can update your local address and telephone number, and request services such as practical training employment authorization, recommendations for Severe Economic Hardship employment authorization, reduced course load authorization, program extension, changes of level, transfer of SEVIS record, adding of dependents, taking a leave of absence or returning from one, submitting STEM OPT Validation Reports, J-1 Academic Training, etc. Guides not available in the portal are provided below.

All requests for immigration-related services are to be submitted in the portal.

All of our international students in F-1 or J-1 status (or applying for F-1 or J-1 status) should log into the portal and verify your personal and immigration information. Use your FlashLine credentials to login. If you have any issues contact
