Mission Statement

Our mission is to support international students and exchange visitors in their cultural and educational transition to the College. The ISO assists students in reaching their educational goals by informing them about their rights and responsibilities relative to their immigration status in the United States, creating a supportive environment and ensuring legal compliance in response to the Department of Homeland Security, the State Department and the Students and Exchange Visitors Program (SEVP).

The ISO website complements the services that are available to all international students and exchange visitors. We strongly encourage you to use it to get information and quick answers to your questions about Hunter College, student visas, immigration regulations, and other special topics.

About Our Web Site

The ISO's Prospective Students page contains general information about the admissions requirements and type of visa you need to study in the United States.

All Newly Admitted Students must learn about the requirements and steps to follow to request the SEVIS I-20 form (Certificate of Eligibility) for the F-1 (student) Visa or the DS2019 form for the J-1 (exchange visitor) Visa.

If you are attending classes, go to the Current Students link for information about the services that are available to all Hunter international students through the ISO. These services include: filing for an extension of stay or reinstatement, applying for permission to work and the social security card, changing immigration status, participating in cultural programs, and other student events.

Contact us by phone or via email for more information or assistance with your admissions and applying for a visa. If you wish to make an appointment, please visit the International Students Office during our office hours. Please click here for our office walk-in hours.
