Departing from MSU


We hope you enjoyed your time with VIPP! Below are a few things to take care of before departing from MSU.

Departure Notice with OISS

When you are ready to leave MSU and your program is close to being finished, you must complete a Departure of Notice at OISS is required to report your program end date to the federal government. This could be the end date on your DS-2019 or it could be a prior date if you complete your program early.

If you have J-2 dependents, and if you and your dependents will be departing separately, you must also submit a J-2 Notice of Departure form. Failure to submit the form prior to your departure may create difficulties when applying for future U.S. visas.

Checking MSU Student Account

Before you depart, make sure to login to your MSU student account to pay any remaining balances.
