Review all of the information on your I-20 or DS-2019 to ensure that it is accurate.
If any of the information appears to be incorrect, please contact me at the Office of International Education (OIE@esf.edu) / Phone: 315-470-6691/ Fax: 315-470-6978) as soon as possible so that I can update your SEVIS record and mail a new I-20 to you prior to your visa interview.
Scan and email a copy of your passport, student visa, and passport photo to OIE@esf.edu. This is necessary to request that a student ID number be generated for you and to create an electronic file for you.
The Office of Student Affairs will mail information to complete online tasks in the spring/summer.

Personal Information All new students must complete the Personal Information Form, which includes emergency contact and other essential information. The information also helps us get to know you and your class, and to serve your out-of-classroom needs. Providing information on race, ethnicity and marital status is optional—submit online.
Policies Acknowledgement Your signature is required on the Policies Acknowledgement portion of this form to verify that you have received, read and understand the ESF Student Handbook. Please note that your registration may be delayed if the signed form is not received—submit online.
Photo One wallet-size copy of a recent photograph of you (a head and shoulders shot) is needed for your official personal file. Again, this helps us to best identify you in cases of emergency (this is NOT the photo used for your Student ID Card)—submit online.
