All new and transfer nonimmigrant international students must check-in with the Office of International Education, Immigration Services. The check-in process is completely online. 30 days before the start of their program, new students will receive an email with instructions about how to check-in.
Check-in cannot be completed until you are in the U.S. Students must check in with our office no later than 15 days after the program start date listed on their I-20 or DS-2019 to avoid having their status terminated. Upon check in with our office, we will also remove the VLP (Verification of Legal Presence) flag from your student account so you can register for classes.
Be sure to check the International Student Life website often for orientation dates and schedules - http://isl.uga.edu/
