Immigration Verification Instructions

The Immigration Verification Form is an electronic form required for all international students as part of the admission process. The form helps the Office of Admissions and International Student Services to understand your current and future immigration status so that we can better assist you in a successful arrival to the United States and Little Rock.

Read Before Starting the Immigration Verification Form

The form cannot be saved while it is in progress, so read the following carefully for successful submission. The form expands based on your answers to previous questions. The form may take 15 minutes to complete.

Uploading Documents

Gather documents needed for upload and check to make sure they have a PDF extension. When you upload a document, a red X may appear next to the document. Unless it says the attachment has failed, your upload was successful.

Immigration Documents for Upload

  • Biographical page of your passport for you and any dependents
  • Visa page if you are currently in the United States
  • Green Card if currently a permanent resident
  • EAD if currently on OPT

Financial Documentation for Upload

If you are now or intending to be an F-1 or J-1 student, you will need to upload proof of financial support. Multiple uploads are accepted. Learn more this requirement and acceptable documentation for financial support.

Sponsoring Dependents

If you have family members who would like to join you in the United States, you will sponsor them as F-2 or J-2 dependents. Additional financial support will be needed, along with copies of each dependent’s passport.

Shipping Preference

Documents are mailed at no cost to the student by standard international mail (no tracking number). If you would prefer to make courier arrangements through UEMS (eShipGlobal), you may do so. You may also pick up your documents from the ISS front desk or give permission for a friend to collect them on your behalf. Learn more about our mailing options. Note: Make courier arrangements only after you have received notification that you I-20 or DS-2019 is complete.
