Department Administrator Trainings

Georgetown faculty and staff by nature are sensitive to matters that uniquely affect international students. OGS provides resources to help colleagues anticipate how their work intersects with the F-1 and J-1 visa regulations. Admissions offices understand that U.S. consular applications impact the timing of initial campus arrival. Academic advisors know the full-time credit trajectory students must follow to program completion. Career counselors have a sense of the experiential training authorizations available to international students. Please consult the resources linked below and email OGS with any questions.
