International Student Services
The Office of International Student and Scholar Services provides programs and services for Manhattan College students and scholars who are in the United States on non-immigrant F and J visas. These programs and services are designed to aid their adjustment to living and studying in New York City. Services include issuing required federal visa documents; assisting with immigration regulations governing enrollment, employment and travel; and publishing a monthly electronic newsletter, which provides important and timely information on a variety of topics. The office conducts an orientation session for all new international students and scholars in August and in January, coordinates a variety of cross-cultural programs and acts as liaison between students and scholars and other college offices, student groups and U.S. and foreign government agencies.
International students and scholars on non-immigrant visas are required to visit the office of International Student and Scholar Services when they arrive on campus, and are encouraged to maintain close contact with the office throughout the year. The office is located in Room 3.02A within the Multicultural Center on the third floor of the Student Commons.
