ISSS Weekly Update

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."
