International Hold

To protect the health and safety of our international students and scholars, ISSS has instituted the following four requirements.  

  • Update your local address and cell phone number. As a condition of your F or J status, you must submit your local US address within 10 days of moving to a new residence.
  • Upload your immigration documents. Submit copies of your immigration documents when you first arrive in the United States and each time your documents change (e.g. new passport, new visa).
  • Verify health insurance. Certify each semester that your health insurance meets UD standards.
  • Update your emergency contact information. Submit contact information for a parent, guardian,  or spouse for the university to contact in the event of an serious or life-threatening emergency.

These requirements are overseen by (and specific to) ISSS. Additional health and safety requirements may apply.  Failure to complete each requirement will result in a registration hold for the following semester.

More information and step-by-step instructions for completing these requirements can be found in the Health & Safety Requirements document in the Forms section.
