Visa Information for International Students

While studying in the United States as an international student, there are many questions you may have concerning your visa status.

The International Programs Office staff are available to you by making an appointment or a quick phone call. Our team are all Designated School Officials (DSO) and are here to help you navigate this sometimes complex system. We are also here to advise international students on cultural issues, adjustment concerns and any academic requirements needed to maintain your visa status.

The International Programs Office staff can assist international students with changing visa status, Optional Practical Training (OPT), questions about travelling outside the United States, and more. Please reach out to the International Programs Office staff regarding any visa and immigration questions you may have during your time at Goodwin College.
