October To-Dos

Required To-Dos

  • ASAP – Review introductory information on blog and communication from Office of Global Services. This includes our detailed visa instructions.
  • Renew/obtain your passport! Your passport MUST be valid through at least November 2017 (6 months BEYOND the last day of your stay in Germany). Upload a CLEAR, COLOR copy of your passport to OGS. This must be a scan of both the bio and signature pages of the passport (no extra objects in photo, i.e. table, hand, etc.)
  • Complete the Student Information Form (even if waiting on a renewed passport). This is crucial to obtaining support letters on time for your visa application.
