Register with ISSA

Mandatory for All New Notre Dame-sponsored International Students

Students with a Notre Dame-sponsored F-1 or J-1 student visa must register with International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA) within 30 days of the program start date on their I-20 or DS-2019. After registering with ISSA, you will be able to complete Notre Dame Roll Call. Bring your passport for registration. If a student fails to check in within 30 days, their I-20 record may be terminated.

Students with an August 2018 program start date can complete the required F-1 or J-1 Visa Registration by bringing their passport to International Student Orientation check-in on Tuesday, August 14, at LaFortune Student Center. 

Students whose program start date is before August 1, 2018 should register by visiting the ISSA office at 105 Main Building during walk-in hours, Monday to Friday, 1-4pm, upon arriving on campus. 


Notre Dame-sponsored F-1 and J-1 Visa Holders: You must present your passport to an ISSA advisor before registering with your local U.S. address.
