Monthly Newsletters & Special Events

During the Fall and Spring semesters, the OISS publishes a monthly newsletter, which is sent to the mailing address that each F-1 student provided to the University Registrar's Office in Genisys. The OISS also sends email messages to all F-1 international students every other week. The newsletters and email messages contain important immigration updates and reminders to help you maintain lawful immigration status and avoid problems, so all international students are expected to read them carefully. If you are not receiving the newsletters or the emails, it is important that you notify the OISS immediately at (757) 352-4130.
