Our team supports international students with a range of student services including advising, immigration, employment, and more.

Maintaining Status

Maintaining status is a critical responsibility of those studying in the U.S. on student visas. We want you to remain in good standing, so we work to ensure all students follow proper procedures for SEVIS and the University.

Support Services

Our Office supports you as you transition from your home country to life in Sewanee through several support services. These include student advising, acculturation guidance on U.S. processes (e.g. taxes), and cultural events.

Leadership Opportunities

International students find leadership opportunities all over campus, as well as in the Office of Global Citizenship.

EXCHANGE STUDENTS & SCHOLARS

Exchange students and scholars are invited to Sewanee for one semester or one year on a J-1 visa.

Resources and Frequently Asked Questions

Many international students have questions about CPT, OPT, employment, maintaining status, and basic aspects of living in the U.S. Whatever your question, we will try and answer it!
