Introducing iStart

iStart is a new online program that allows international students, scholars, and staff to track current information and submit important requests to International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) electronically.

The key feature of iStart is the use of e-forms. All forms previously available on paper (except the SEVIS Update Form) can now be submitted using the iStart e-forms. Once you submit an e-form, the form will be sent electronically to ISSS or an academic adviser for review.

Currently, iStart e-forms are only available for use by current F-1 students. E-forms for other international student, scholar, and staff groups will be available in the future.
