Impact of Online/Remote Courses on your SEVIS Record

  • You may be inside, or outside the U.S. while taking remote coursework.

  • Remote instruction will be delivered for the entirety of the Spring 2020 term.


Document Requests

  • Submit your Document Requests through iPortal . Effective Thursday, March 20, 2020 students may only receive their documents by U.S. Postal Service mail (only for domestic mail within the U.S., at ISPO’s expense) or by Express Mail (for both domestic and international mail, at student’s expense).
