International Student Services

The Primary Designated Officer (PDSO) and The Graduate School facilitate the successful transition for international students into the College community and support them to maximize the range and extent of their learning opportunities in academic, social, and cultural settings. The PDSO advises students regarding the maintenance of F-1 status (non-immigrant student), immigration petitions such as F-1 work permits (Optional Practical Training, STEM), reinstatement, change of status, medical leave and transfer procedures. Both The Graduate School and Student Life Division host cultural events for domestic and international students.

On-campus housing is available for both undergraduate and graduate international students. During Thanksgiving, winter and spring break, housing is available at no cost for international students living on-campus. Housing during summer is available on priority basis at a nominal cost.

The PDSO's office is located in Apple Resource Center, Room 1.
