International Student Basics for Departments – Workshop

Learn what international students go through just to arrive at Virginia Tech, and then what they have to do legally to remain in the U.S. If you are you curious about how and when International Graduate Student Services, a small unit within the Graduate School, processes immigration forms, attend this information session provided by Ruth Athanson and Zelma Harris, immigration advisors for the Graduate School.

The session is scheduled for Tuesday, April 6, from 1-2 pm in Room F of the Graduate Life Center. The information is designed for those who work with international graduate students, and will help departments understand more about how immigration issues impact their work with these students. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

If you have questions about the session, you can contact Ruth Athanson or Zelma Harris at 231-8486, or by email at
