International Student and Scholar Services publishes the ISSS Weekly Update newsletter, an email sent to all international students at the start of each week.
These updates consist of a very brief listing of announcements such as:
- Changes and important news about U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regulations
- Tax resources for international students and scholars
- Small World Coffee Hour, Cross-Cultural Discussion Group, End of Year Graduation Party, and more!
- Deadlines and document turnover time (e.g., when to submit documents for signatures if you plan to travel during breaks)
- Changes in ISSS walk-in or general hours
- Any specific events that ISSS is offering to international students and scholars.
Scholars and Employment-Based Visa Holders
In addition to the Weekly Update, ISSS publishes the ISSS Scholar Update, a monthly newsletter for international faculty, staff and scholars. J-1 Scholars and employees with H-1B, E-3, or TN status are encouraged to carefully read these monthly emails, as they contain information that is important to maintaining immigration status. To subscribe to the ISSS Scholar Update, go to z.umn.edu/scholarisssupdate and click "Join Group."
Departments and Staff
Staff members may also sign up to receive the ISSS Weekly Update and other email notifications.
