10.7.12. International Student Services (ISS)

Each international student studying at Oglethorpe on an F or J student visa is required to comply with specific federal guidelines to remain in-status as an international student studying in the United States. The role of ISS is to provide international student orientation sessions to help international students understand these guidelines.  ISS also liaises with various departments University-wide to verify full-time status (or process reduced course load requests when appropriate), provides guidance on working opportunities (OCE, CPT, and OPT), and notifies students of processes and deadlines to maintain status and file federally mandated forms.
