• Information for Faculty and Departments

    Welcome to the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) webpage for New School administrators and faculty. This page is designed to help you assist your international students as efficiently as possible.

    International Student and Scholar Services:

    • Supports divisional academic and administrative efforts to recruit and retain more international students (and faculty members)
    • Creates opportunities for interactions between international and American students on campus
    • Assists with the coordination of university events with an international focus and participants
    • Supports study abroad initiatives
    • Researches and disseminates models of successful international academic cooperation
    • Fosters partnerships with academic and administrative departments to generate ideas, funding, and services that will improve the experience of international students at The New School.

    ISSS attends orientation events for international students and works closely with the other offices of the university and the colleges to advise and assist with international student issues from the admission stage through to graduation. Most frequently, our office is called upon to advise on visa status and employment-related immigration regulations.

    ISSS has created a PowerPoint presentation as part of our outreach to internal offices that highlights common issues for international students, such as campus employment, and outlines common procedures and regulations affecting international students that may involve administrative staff and/or faculty. If you would like ISSS to make a presentation for a group of faculty, advisors, or administrators, email iss@newschool.edu.

    Academic Departments

    International students and scholars must fulfill certain requirements to remain in the United States on a student visa. Students who enroll for less than full time, drop courses, or do not attend class may be in violation of the terms of their visa. ISSS is here to offer accurate information and advice about particular individuals and circumstances.

    Administrative Offices

    The ISSS staff is available to assist with any questions regarding the hiring of international students while protecting their immigration status (which is normally quite easy).

    Faculty

    New School faculty play a significant role in attracting and retaining international students. ISSS staff members are available to assist faculty members with any suggestions, questions, or concerns they may have with regard to international students or scholars.

    International students and scholars must fulfill certain requirements to remain in the United States. If students drop below full time as defined by U.S. law and regulations, drop courses, or do not attend class, they may lose the right to remain in the United States as students. Please review the entire section on F-1 students and J-1 students concerning these requirements.
