ISSS Advanced Workshop

ISSS Advanced Workshop

The ISSS Advanced Workshop is a 4 hour workshop designed to help staff explore in depth the tools offered in TDS for working with student and scholar data changes and reporting those changes to SEVIS. Additionally we will look at auditing your SEVIS data for accuracy.

This workshop will assume attendees are familiar with their TDS site configurations and internal office processes. The workshop will be a mix of lecture, demonstration, and hands-on practice. During the lecture/demo sections, material will be covered in an intensive-format learning environment, so attendees should bring energy and enthusiasm for a fast-paced and fun workshop. During the hands-on sections, Terra Dotta staff will be actively involved with participants to answer questions.
