Passport Verification (PPV) Document Submission System
All new international students are required to submit copies of their immigration documents to USC Office of International Services using the Passport Verification Document Submission System upon arrival to the United States (U.S.). PPV is a procedure that verifies a student’s immigration status to ensure that the student is eligible to start an academic program at USC for the upcoming academic semester.
New international students who are currently in the U.S. may complete PPV.
New international students who are currently outside the U.S. must wait until they arrive in the U.S. to complete PPV.
