If you plan to obtain a driver’s license, state identification (ID) card, US bank account, or a new visa, you may request a Status Verification Letter. The Status Verification Letter is available to Marshall University students and scholars in valid F-1 or J-1 status.
- If you are a newly arrived student, please be sure to wait 10 business days from the date of your check-in with the Office of International Student Services before requesting a letter.
- If you are a currently enrolled student, please be sure that you are meeting all registration requirements prior to requesting a letter.
- If you have graduated and are applying for OPT, the USCIS must first receive your case before applying for a driver’s license. You must be prepared to present your I-797 Receipt Notice at the DMV.

Processing times for Status Verification Letters is 2-3 business days. You will receive email notification to your Marshall University email account once the letter is prepared. If you do not receive notification in a timely manner, please contact the Office of International Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
