UCSBGlobal launches February 2021. Don't miss the required training!

The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) is excited to announce the upcoming launch of UCSBGlobal in February 2021.
UCSBGlobal will be replacing two systems:
  • UCSB International Scholar Dossier (ISD)
  • International Student & Scholar Management (ISSM)
Starting in February 2021, UCSBGlobal will serve as the one-stop-shop for all international student and scholar recordkeeping, documentation, and immigration process management. 

If you are no longer an ISD user, kindly contact us at j1scholar@sa.ucsb.edu to inform our office of this change, as well as your replacement information if applicable. 

We would like to assure you that this change is being made after careful research and deliberation, and with your user experience as a top priority.
UCSBGlobal offers many advantages that will provide you with an improved and streamlined user experience, including but not limited to:
  • Seamless interfacing with SEVIS, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security database
  • Real-time record processing
  • Reduction of document production timeframes
  • Elimination of paper processes
  • User-friendly interface
Watch the video below, which further outlines the value UCSBGlobal will add, specifically for Personnel Analysts and J-1 Scholars. (Click on the video to watch on YouTube.)

To ensure a seamless transition, OISS will be providing virtual, required UCSBGlobal trainings. Through these trainings, end users will learn how to use the new system, and how existing processes will be improved and streamlined.

All current ISD users must register for one of the below required trainings. They will be offered in January 2021, and have been staggered to accommodate your schedules. Please sign up as soon as possible; each session has a capacity limit of 20:

January 19th, 10:00 - 11:00 AM
January 20th, 2:00 - 3:00 PM
January 22nd, 10:00 - 11:00 AM
January 26th, 2:00 - 3:00 PM
January 27th, 10:00 - 11:00 AM
January 28th, 2:00 - 3:00 PM
We at OISS are extremely excited for the upcoming launch of UCSBGlobal, and we are confident that you will soon recognize its value as well. This new platform will help us streamline our business practices, thus improving our services for international scholars and the academic departments that host them.
We look forward to working with you to implement the new system and we thank you in advance for your support and collaboration.
