International Student Overview for USF Faculty and Staff

USF students here on an F-1 or J-1 visa are international students that have a special relationship with the university. Since USF has agreed to host these students and support them in obtaining a visa for study, we are also responsible for assisting them in maintaining their visa status. These students have certain enrollment requirements and employment restrictions that can be important to keep in mind when advising them on academic and career options. Academic advisors, professors and department staff often assist international students with letters and documentation for their visa status. Please find resources on the most common topics below:
