Attention! Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, all USF international services offices have changed to remote operation. Until further notice, we are no longer offering documents for pickup. If you are submitting an E-Form that will generate a document (Travel Signature, OPT requests, etc), please indicate that you need the document mailed to you so you can pay via EshipGlobal shipping.

Basic questions can be sent to immigrationprocessing@usf.edu. If you need to meet with an advisor for an important immigration issue please complete the Request Advisor Appointment E-form under Contact Us in iStart, for a remote meeting.
