ISS is currently implementing a new online immigration compliance and record management system called Terra Dotta. We plan to launch Terra Dotta summer/fall 2019. Student records from International Student & Scholar Management (ISSM) will be converted to Terra Dotta. New student data will flow from SIS to Terra Dotta to create a student portal.

Terra Dotta will:

  • Collect information required for initial attendance and transfer F-1 I-20 and J-1 DS-2019 requests, integrating with SIS
  • Enhance the international student experience
  • Send automated reminders and alerts to students

Terra Dotta will not:

  • Replace the ISS website- we will still update important information at
  • Integrate with Advisor Notes System/Advising Gateway. ISS staff will still access and use Advising Gateway on a case-by-case basis.
  • Integrate with Salesforce
