You must register at the HIO soon after your arrival at Harvard. Please take your passport, Form I-94 (the small white card usually stapled to the inside of your passport), and visa document, (i.e. Form I-20, Form DS-2019 or Form I-797) for registration at the HIO. If you have dependents who have accompanied you to the United States in a dependent visa status such as F-2, J-2 or H-4 please take their visa documents and passports to the HIO as well. Please also take any documents issued by an immigration official upon your entry to the United States. The staff at the HIO will provide important immigration-related information as well as an orientation, and will answer any questions you may have. Students will not be permitted to register for classes at their schools without first registering at the HIO.
You may complete and print the HIO Registration Form to take with you to the HIO, or complete the form when you are at the HIO.
