As an F-1 or J-1 student, there is so much to learn, explore, and discover in the U.S., and the Office of Global Services (OGS) encourages you to do it all. Before you do, please understand what documents you should carry with you when traveling within the the U.S. or its territories.

Before traveling abroad, international students need to make sure they have the proper documentation to re-enter the U.S. which includes a valid travel signature.

Depending on the length of your program and duration of your visa, your visa may expire during your program at Northeastern University. If your visa expires, you will need to renew it before you re-enter the U.S. after traveling abroad.

Northeastern encourages students to have many global experiences. F-1 or J-1 students who will participate in an Northeastern study abroad program need to know what documents to bring on their adventure.

Northeastern is a global university. So, it goes without saying that traveling to engage with the world is encouraged. And for international students and their dependents, it will require the right documents and authorizations.
