The International Student Services Office provides technical assistance and advice to international students. Its prime responsibilities are to keep the College and the graduate and undergraduate students in compliance with the applicable immigration regulations and to help these students gain and maintain their F-1 status, as well as to assist with their administrative issues relating to employment, taxation, and the like. In conjunction with these formal obligations, the office provides informal advice on matters of cultural, social, and personal concern, and supports the activities of the International Student Organization.
