  2. Scroll down to “Select Student List by College” under Administrator Tools.
  3. Follow the directions for selection.
  4. Select your college (you may choose to narrow your selection by program and/or degree/level).

  6. Under Student Population - Click on “registered” and “eligible to register”.

(If the list of students is less than 500 and you wish to view this online, go to Produce a list on your screen)

To Produce a list on your screen
  1. Select “International Students” to get the semester verification information.
  2. You may print this page.

To Produce a list on your desktop:

  1. Choose “Downloaded” from the top of the report screen upon which your students appear.
  2. Select “International Students” - the International Student Data Category for Downloading.
  3. Follow the instructions to save the dataset on your desktop.

Information about international students should appear either on the downloaded list or on the screen list in the last three columns on the far right side of the report. These columns will report the immigration status of the international student, a date specifying whether the student has completed the “Initial ISSO Check-in” at the beginning of his/her academic program as well as the date whether a continuing student has completed the “semester verification” for the current semester. A notation of “required” indicates that either the “Initial ISSO Check-in” or the “semester verification” has not been completed.
