The ISSO welcomes new international students to campus! Welcome back to students returning for the fall semester! 

Here are some beginning of term reminders and resources:

  2. Be sure to be registered full-time by the end of day next Friday, the end of the normal registration period.
     
  3. Working on campus or receiving a Columbia stipend for the first time? Review how to apply for a Social Security Number.
     
  4. New to Columbia this fall or returning after a leave with a new I-20 / DS-2019? Be sure to Report Your Arrival and refer to information on Your First Week and Resources for Students on our website.
