Int’l Student and Scholar Services

Another part of my job involves issuing I-20s for initial attendance, which means I need to know about F-1 regulations; our ISSS office handles everything else, including SEVIS/fsaAtlas maintenance. I also liaise with our Sponsored Student Coordinator, which means I need to have knowledge about J-1 regulations, although thankfully I can rely on my colleague Stephanie any time I have questions.
