The Office of International Student Services
You Are Welcome Here
The Office of International Student Services offers a range of support services for both undergraduate and graduate students who come to Marist College from abroad. Programs include an intensive orientation program for new students prior to the start of classes each semester. Orientation is designed to introduce new students to the campus, its students, faculty, and staff, and to familiarize them with the academic policies and procedures of Marist, and applicable rules and regulations of the United States government. Students should plan to arrive on campus approximately one week before classes begin in order to participate in orientation.
Additionally, the office provides ongoing academic, social, religious, and cultural support for all international students. Programming often includes seminars about OPT and CPT, student health insurance, tax preparation, and writing tutorials. Finally, we are always eager to celebrate the richness of our diverse traditions. The Marist International Student Association (MISA) enthusiastically plans celebrations for Diwali, Iftar, and Christmas, just to name a few.
International Exchange Students from partner institutions are welcome at Marist College. The International Student Exchange Program, administered by the Office of International Student Services in conjunction with Marist Abroad, is responsible for coordinating aspects of the exchange students’ stay, prior to orientation through completion of their course work at Marist.
