Registering Passports

Upon their arrival on campus, international students must register their passports with the Office of International Student and Scholar Services as soon as possible. A registration hold has been placed on the records of all international students, which means that international students cannot register for classes until that hold is cleared. To register your passport, you need to bring in your passport and I‑20 or DS-2019 documents.

You should also visit the OISS web page for the most up-to-date information for Northwestern international students. Another resource is their “Frequently Asked Questions” page.
