International Students

Global Engagement office advises international students and USFSM staff regarding immigration compliance, visa status maintenance and acculturation issues for international students. The office provides workshops on employment, medical insurance and tax matters for international students as well as cultural adjustment and other topics. Additionally GEO develops, plans, and conducts orientation programs for new students. In collaboration with other USF departments GEO works to increase the level of understanding regarding immigration issues.
