You must fill out this "check-in" form every semester until you graduate.The form is used to update your record and verify that you have arrived at UMPI and are using your I-20. In addition to completing the form, you will need to provide a copy of your I-94* (white card). For more information, please contact Jessica Blackstone at 207-768-9535 or
*I-94 -- a small, white, cardboard form that is stapled in your passport or on your I-20 and is dated to show entry and expiration dates. It is called the "departure record" and is surrendered when you leave the country. It should also have your admission number or alien registration number on the card.
- Attend New Student International Orientation for First Year and Transfer International Students. Time and place was provided in the letter that accompanied your I-20.
