The International Student Services Team, serves the international student community of SUNY Poly. We provide immigration services, initial and on-going orientation programming and general support to the international population.
Through our immigration services, we help international students maintain their status in compliance with immigration regulations and apply for the immigration benefits for which they are eligible. The International Student Services Team also provides assistance and advocacy for all international students with the campus, community, and state and federal offices. Additionally, numerous workshops on immigration topics are offered to international students and the campus community.
As part of our orientation programming, we provide extensive fall and spring orientation programs for incoming international students and workshops throughout the semester on topics relating to living and working in the U.S. They work with student groups to help provide activities to complement the educational experiences of international students.
The PDSOs assist our current students who are interested in developing skills and experience in full and part-time off-campus work related to their studies through Curricular Practical Training and Optional Practical Training. Additionally, there are a limited number of opportunities for international students to work on campus during the semester and over semester breaks.
