Basic International Student Requirements for Faculty and Staff

This workshop provides an overview of the basic requirements governing most international students’ ability to pursue their studies in the United States, from admission to graduation. Topics addressed include visa application, enrollment requirements, international student employment and social security, program completion requirements. Presenters: Anne Ekkaia and Shannon Jolly.
