As a student What should I do?
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service regulations require that UNK maintain accurate, current information on all enrolled international students. Every beginning of session (January and August) and / or any change in citizenship, address in the U.S.A, email, phone, or home address the International Student Information Form (PDF format) should be filled out within the next 10 days of the change.
If you are a new student you should review the Checklist for International Students and do the activities mentioned.
What International Education can do for me?
At the International Student Service Office, students can find Designated School Officials who are authorized to sign and initiate required authorizations in SEVIS, travel endorsements, requests for employment authorization along with other student needs.
