International Student Support
Although our USF community is dispersed across the world, we are focused on supporting our international students and addressing the unique challenges you are facing. We have developed a range of new resources to help support international students during these times including a global mobility team, international shipping of library materials, career support, ISSS town halls, additional letters of support for immigration purposes, adjusted advising hours, and revised information for applying to USCIS for OPT during COVID-19.
We will continue to work closely with campus partners to adapt services to your needs. Your success is our success. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to support you.
We miss seeing all of you on-campus and look forward to our community’s safe return as soon as public health conditions allow.
Advocate for International Education
- If you want to get more involved and have your voice heard, there are many things you can do. ISSS has created an advocacy handout that has information on how to get express concerns and have your voice be heard.
