The International Students Office (ISO) provides vital immigration-related information to international students, including F-1 and J-1 Exchange Visitor status or visa holders, including Fulbright students sponsored by the Institute of International Education; other students with questions about their statuses to assist them in learning advocacy and status maintenance skills. The ISO also advises faculty/staff on matters of F-1/J-1 employment eligibility, etc. Since the students’ academic progress is related to their respective immigration status,we refer all undergraduate international students to Academic Advising Services and graduate international students to their respective departments for educational planning for timely graduation from Hunter College.

The ISO is an important source of informa­tion regarding immigration matters, such as the requirements for compliance with the Student Exchange and Visitors Information System (SEVIS) and the US Department of State. The ISO offers opportunities for off campus cross cultural and community engagement. The ISO issues SEVIS I-20/DS2019 forms to all newly admitted inter­national students. It is also a strong liaison between the students and various offices within and off campus to help make the students’ transition to Hunter College easier. It also provides individualized advising and holds small group discussions throughout the academic year on top­ics of interest, such as employment options, immigration law, tax issues, and adaptation to both the United States (U.S.) educational systems and to the U.S. We assist students with change of status applications, employment authorizations. We work closely with CUNY’s Citizenship Now for matters regarding Permanent Residency and Naturalization

We warmly welcome all studnts. For more information, visit the International Students Office and website.
