Schedule OIS Check-In

Check-in with OIS is required by law for all new F-1 and J-1 international students, including transfer students.  The check-in process has two parts and both must be completed in order to successfully complete the check-in requirement. 

  • Completion of check-in forms in your Global Home account
  • Attendance at a check-in session

Who Must Attend Check-in

  • International students (F-1 and J-1 visa) must attend a check-in session upon arrival to NC State. This includes students matriculating from the Intensive English Program and transfer students.
  • Students on other visas (H-1, H-4, F-2, etc.) should NOT attend the OIS Check-in session, as it is not a requirement of those visas.
  • Dependents on J-2 visas are required to check in with OIS. Please complete the Dependent Check-in Form to schedule a J-2 check-in appointment.
