Citizenship & Immigration

Tips for Getting Started

  • Work with an International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) advisor to determine the immigration requirements for your U.S. student visa
  • Work with an academic advisor to determine the requirements of your degree (both majors and minors), as well any impact to your intended graduation date
  • Research the visa requirements for the host program based on your citizenship
  • Consider your timelines for participating in your program, including any plans for return trips to your home country (or travel outside the U.S.), while processing your documents for the Experiential Global Learning program. This includes the UConn application period, the host program application, any visa related appointments, and the process period until your visa/passport is available.
