Services for International Students

The Office of International Student Services, located in the Student Center, Room S105, serves the international community of SUNYIT, including students, visiting scholars, and faculty. 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 Office 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. The Office of International Student Services works with student groups to help provide activities to complement the educational experiences of international students.

We also assist our current students who are interested in developing skills and experience in full and part-time off-campus work related to their studies. There are two options for this: Curricular Practical Training and Optional Practical Training. There are a limited number of opportunities for international students to work on campus during the semester and over semester breaks.
