10.6.12. International Student Services (ISS)

Each international student studying at Oglethorpe on an F 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 support for international students, including orientation sessions to help international students understand these guidelines. ISS also liaises with various departments University-wide to verify full-time status, process reduced course load requests when appropriate, provide guidance on working opportunities (OCE, CPT, and OPT), conduct workshops for F-1 student-related issues, and notify students of processes and deadlines to maintain status and file federally mandated forms.
