International Student Services


Welcome to the Current Students section of our website.  If you are on an F-1 or J-1 visa, you can find answers to your immigration questions regarding working on campus or working off campus through Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT). You can fill out a form to request a letter from ISS that you will need to apply for a Social Security card or a driver’s license.  If you plan to visit home during the next break, be sure to check the “Before You Travel Checklist” and make an appointment with ISS at least one week before you are scheduled to leave to get your I-20 signed for travel.  As always, ISS is always available to assist you with any questions you may have.  Please stop by!
