International students who will be traveling outside the United States over summer term, please remember that you must have a signed SEVIS Form I-20 or DS-2019 for yourself and any dependents traveling with you. Travel signatures on your I-20/DS-2019 are valid for one year (or, if you are on Optional Practical Training, for six months). You can drop off your I-20 for a signature at the reception desk in 140 Enarson Classroom Building and pick it up the next business day after 1 p.m.

For students who will be working on-campus this summer, please keep in mind that full-time on-campus employment is permitted only once spring semester has officially ended (spring commencement is May 5, so the full-time on-campus employment may only begin on or after May 6 and must end before classes start on August 20). Any off-campus employment (paid or unpaid) you intend on doing this summer needs to be approved by the Office of International Affairs and printed on your I-20/DS-2019 prior to beginning employment.

If summer is your final term, please remember that your final semester cannot be counted as your vacation term and you are therefore not eligible to work full-time on or off campus during your final term. Additionally, if summer is your final term and you will not be enrolled full-time, please do remember to submit to our office the Reduced Course Load for Final Term form immediately.
