Understanding International Student Need

This workshop teaches faculty and staff about immigration regulations and suggests best practices for advising international students on F-1 visas. 89% international students at Texas State are here studying on an F-1 visa. With immigration constantly hanging, and too many acronyms to remember, this workshop breaks down what you need to know to help our international students at Texas State University. We will review evaluating international transcripts, forms and documentation necessary to ensure compliance with federal regulations. Finally, attendees will have an opportunity to engage with international students through a student panel. Students will share their experiences, needs, and challenges as international students at Texas State University.
