What To Do In Case of a Late Arrival
Reminder! The directions below are only for students who have been APPROVED for late arrival through the graduate college and ISSS. Please review the below steps and if you have questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 1: Report your arrival to ISSS
Log in to iCats and scroll down to the gray “Requests” banner. Click on the entry that starts with “Admitted Spring…”. Complete and submit the “Confirm Arrival” eform.
Step 2: Update your “SEVIS US” address and your phone number in your MyOHIO Student Center
ISSS cannot report your arrival to the government until you have taken the above steps.
Step 3: Watch the 10 Rules video from orientation
Review the video appropriate for your visa status.
Step 4: Complete 10 Rules Quiz
Take the 10 Rules Completion Quiz by logging into iCats and finding the quiz under "International Office" on the left-side menu. You cannot register for classes until you have reviewed the videos and finalized the quiz.
ISSS cannot remove your registration hold until the above action is completed. Please allow 1 business day for ISSS to remove the hold.
Step 5: Get your Bobcat ID Card
Your Ohio University ID card is used to verify your status as a student, faculty, or staff member in good standing. You also can use the card to take the Athens Public Transit bus for free. You can get your ID by stopping by Bobcat Depot, located in Baker Center on the 1st floor behind the escalators.
Step 6: Update your Outlook calendar!
Open Outlook calendar - you can navigate to email@example.com and open the calendar using the calendar icon on the bottom (or side) of the screen
Click on your name - it often looks like a circle with your initials in it (mine says DC)
Click on the cog/wheel for settings
Click on time and date
Click the drop down for EST (USA/Canada)
Step 7: Pick up your welcome bag!
We have a welcome bag for you! Please stop by the ISSS office (address below) between the hours of 8am and 5pm (we are closed for lunch from 12-1pm) to pick up your bag.
