SEVIS is the Student and Exchange Visitor Information database, used nationwide, by U.S. government to maintain accurate and current information on non-immigrant students, as well as generate a Form I-20, which is required to present at a visa interview.
Additionally, email Proof of Health Insurance copy to email@example.com. Include your first name, last name, and CSUN ID number in the subject line of the email. For more information, please see Health and Accident Insurance Requirements. Health insurance is a CSU requirement.

Receive schedule of classes and attend classes!
To maintain visa and Form I-20, the U.S. government REQUIRES all international students be enrolled in FULL-TIME studies. For Fall/Spring SAC undergraduate students, full-time enrollment is a minimum of 12 units. For Fall/Spring SAC graduate students, full-time enrollment is a minimum of 9 units. Failure to attend classes while in the U.S. violates the student visa terms. More information regarding studying in the United States can be found at SEVIS Arriving and Maintaining Student Visa Status (Grads & Credit).
