Once You Arrive

To maintain your F-1 or J-1 status, you must complete three steps after arriving in the U.S.

Update your local address and phone number in MyAccess

  • Log in to MyAccess (https://myaccess.georgetown.edu/) with your NetID and password.   
  • Click the "Personal Information" tab.   
  • Select "View/Access Addresses and Phone Numbers"    
  • Select "Update Addresses and Phones"  
  • Select "Local Off-Campus and click "insert"  
  • Input your local address and phone number and save. The end date (until this date) field can be left blank.

Document Check-in

Please bring the following to your document check-in:

  • Passport with F-1/J-1 visa
  • I-20 or DS-2019, and the I-20s/DS-2019s of any dependents. 

LL.M. Summer Experience students will receive a email with available check-in times.

Immigration and Compliance Session

LL.M. Summer Experience students will need to attend a session during the first week of Foundations. 

All other students will need to attend a session during Orientation.  Please see your Orientation schedule for date, time, and location.

It is important that you attend the session, even if you have already been in F-1 or J-1 status at another university.  Georgetown has many Georgetown-specific policies, and we want to make sure that you understand our policies and your responsibilities before the year begins.
