Next Steps for International Students

Congratulations and welcome to Dallas International! We look forward to meeting you. Please read the International Student Handbook and complete all post-admission requirements. If you have any questions, contact Admissions.

International students must attend the general Orientation program for new students as well as International Student Orientation, which immediately follows the general Orientation program. When you arrive on campus, stop by the Admissions office in Pike 113. We would love to meet you!

Copies of the following immigration documents are needed:

  • Visa: Your visa should be stamped inside your passport.
  • Signed, stamped I-20 (DS-2019): The International Student Coordinator will keep a copy of each I-20 (DS-2019) issued to you. Be sure to keep all I-20s (DS-2019s) issued to you over the duration of your studies in the US. (They are proof of your continual valid enrollment as a student in the US.)
  • I-94: Go to the US I-94 website and download your I-94 document.

You must bring your immigration documents to the Admissions Office (Pike 113) prior to International Student Orientation.
