The International Student Portal is where students upload or enter their required documents and information so that OISS can issue your I-20 or DS-2019.

In order to gain access to the International Student Portal, you must first activate your UCSB Umail Account. All international students should use “0000” for the SSN field.

Once OISS receives your UCSB email address (2-3 days after activation) we will send an International Student Portal invitation email to your UCSB email account. The email will come from oiss-portal-admin@sa.ucsb.edu

Once you have activated your International Student Portal account, you may then upload documents and enter required information.

If you do not upload all required documents and information at the same time, it will take longer for you to receive your I-20 or DS-2019.

Remember to login to your International Student Portal, you MUST use your @umail.ucsb.edu address!

To access the International Student Portal use this address: https://studentvisa.sa.ucsb.edu/
