Last Quarter Statement

Last Quarter Statement

Students completing their degree need to report their last term so that we can update the SEVIS immigration database. If we do not receive and accurately record your last quarter into SEVIS, you risk complications within the database. 

Full-time Credit Load

Although you do not need authorization regarding your credit load, you are still required to submit a statement to our office.

Write a statement in letter form (not a list) that includes the following information: 

  • The date the request is written
  • Your full legal name and SU ID
  • Your degree and completion date/quarter/semester
  • Course names and number of credits taken in the last quarter
  • Your plans for after you complete yoru degree
  • Signed with your official signature

Please drop off this form in person at the International Student Center.

Below Full-Time Credit Load

Even though government regulations state that international students must be at full time, there is an exception during your final quarter. If you have less than a full-time credit load left in order to complete your degree, the ISC can authorize you to take classes below full-time.

In order to do this, we must have a last quarter statement from you. If you do not submit this statement, you risk being terminated in the SEVIS government database for not complying to government regulations. 

Write a statement in letter form that includes the following information: 

  • The date the request is written
  • Your full legal name and SU ID
  • Your degree and completion date/quarter/semester
  • Course names and number of credits taken in the last quarter
