IF YOU NEED A NEW VISA STAMP IN YOUR PASSPORT
It is very important that if you are planning on traveling out of the U.S. AND need a new visa stamp in your passport that you speak to the International Student Services Office prior to traveling. You must have a "SEVIS" I-20 issued from our office prior to applying for a new visa stamp.
Finally, a certificate of enrollment is available from the Records and Registration Office if you are a registered student at Monroe Community College. This form will provide documentation that you are currently and have been a registered student at Monroe Community College. While this is not a required form for re-entry it will ease in your re-entry to the U.S. if you are questioned at the border. You may request this letter from the Records and Registration Office located in Building 6-203. Calling a day ahead to request the letter is highly recommended (585) 292-2300. There is no fee for this document.
