    Check-In Sessions (Mandatory)

    Welcome and congratulations on your admission to California State University, Long Beach!
    Check-In Sessions take place at the Center for International Education in Brotman Hall, Room 201. All new degree-seeking international students must attend one session in order to have their CIE Check-In Holds released and to meet U.S. government requirements for validation of student immigration documents. International students who fail to attend a Check-In Session may be dis-enrolled from their classes
