New student check-in
Welcome to NAU
All new international students are required to check-in with International Student and Scholar Services. There are three steps to the check-in process. Step 1 must be completed prior to your arrival to the US while steps 2 and 3 must be completed after you arrive. Without completing all three steps, ISSS will not be able to activate your SEVIS record and you will be considered out of status.
