Here you will find important information about maintaining your F-1 status, how to deal with academic issues and taking a leave of absence. We also provide information on how to file your taxes, how to get a social security card, employment and OPT/CPT programs.

Remember that all requests need to be submitted through the ISAP portal, which you can find in your webpage or at the link below:

Helpful Tips for Using the ISAP Portal

  • Detailed log in instructions
  • Only click on the request on the site home page one time.
    • Every time you click on the request, it opens a new request which means you have to duplicate entry and have to re-enter the same information. This delays processing.
  • When working on requests, you can save it even if you have not completed it, and return to the request later. Once the request is complete, click on Submit.
  • Once you’ve finished the entire request, be sure to click on Submit. If you do not click the Submit button your request will not be sent to ISAP.
