International Student Services

International Student Services advises on issues ranging from immigration regulations to resources available for achieving academic, financial, and personal goals. Customized orientations are held before fall, spring, and summer terms to address the specific needs of international students, where you can:

  • Learn about the culture and environments of SAIC and Chicago
  • Attend workshops designed to help you achieve while you are a student
  • Meet faculty, staff and international student leaders

We offer workshops throughout the year to educate international students on their immigration responsibilities and provide opportunities to enhance their academic experience at SAIC.

Our team members are active members of NAFSA, the Association for International Educators. NAFSA and its members believe that international education and exchange—connecting students, scholars, educators, and citizens across borders—is fundamental to:

  • Establishing mutual understanding among nations
  • Preparing the next generation with vital cross-cultural and global skills
  • Creating the conditions for a more peaceful world
