Last Day to Submit ISD Requests is January 15, 2021
Dear ISD Users,
We are writing to inform you that International Scholar Dossier (ISD) will be going completely offline on January 15, 2021, as we prepare for our transition to UCSBGlobal.
UCSBGlobal goes live in early February 2021, and this will give our office some time to manage this important transition. (If you missed the announcement regarding the launch of UCSBGlobal, you can view it by clicking on this link.)
Last Day To Submit Requests Through ISD:
January 15, 2021

January 15th will be the last day to submit any kind of J-1 request (initial, extension, amendment, etc.) through ISD.
In addition, OISS is no longer granting access to or providing training for ISD.
Please keep this date in mind as you consider the invitation and arrival timelines for your J-1 scholars. 

If you are no longer an ISD user, kindly contact us at to inform our office of this change, as well as your replacement information if applicable. 
As a reminder, please be sure to sign up for one of the required trainings we will be offering in January below.
We thank you all very much for your understanding and flexibility as we prepare for this exciting transition.
Thank you,
J-1 Scholar Adivsement Team
Office of International Students & Scholars

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.
