After you receive your F-1 visa or status, please follow these steps:
Schedule an appointment with the International Student Office
You are required to check in with the International Student Office after you enter the United States but no later than the program start date on the first page of your I-20 form. You must bring your passport, I-20, I-94 and approval notice, if applicable, to the appointment.
Attend a mandatory F-1 orientation, which is held the week before the first day of class. It provides important immigration and Wake Tech information and an opportunity to meet with other international students.
