The International Student Office’s mission is to provide services and programs that support the growth, development, and welfare of international students to help achieve their educational goals. This is accomplished by regulatory advising on immigration (ensuring that international students maintain a valid visa status and the College remain in compliance with Federally mandated reporting measures); programs on cultural adjustment and intercultural understanding among the SVA community; and assistance with practical matters related to living in the U.S.
