International Students & Scholars

Benedictine Hospitality provides immigration advising services for students, but can also provide students general assistance in navigating American higher education culture. International students have numerous reporting requirements, and we encourage you to navigate the information on the side for important forms and information. For questions or concerns, please contact mesaiss@ben.edu or (602) 888-5500.

International Student Registration Deadlines

International students studying under an F or visa must be registered for each academic term. Some students have the misconception that International Student Services (ISS) must only register you in SEVIS when you arrive for your first term, but immigration regulations require that students are registered each term.

All international students are required to be registered within 30 days of the term start.

Students who are not registered will be in violation of their status.

                                                                                                                                                            

In order to be registered in SEVIS international students must:

  1. Submit a term check-in-form EACH TERM. This can be found HERE and this must be submitted by the Friday of the first week of classes.  Please don't forget to upload in a copy of your course schedule.   
  2. Students taking a vacation term can submit the same form completing the "Vacation Term Declaration" section. It is recommended you submit a copy of your transcripts so we can confirm you are eligible for a vacation term.
  3. If you are requesting ISS authorize a reduced course-load in SEVIS please submit THIS FORM in addition to the term check-in form.
  4. Attend New International Student Orientation to check-in and show immigration documents.
