New International Students
You may have found this page because you are new to the F-1 visa category, or because you are an F-1 visa holder who is new to The University of Memphis. In both cases, please know that our office is here to assist with questions related to the I-20 form, SEVIS, and other items connected to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's student visa categories. Please contact us via e-mail at: TheWorld@memphis.edu
Fall Orientation for International Students will be held August 23, 2017, in room
115 of the PanHellenic Building
F-1 visa holding students who have pending offers of on-campus employment and therefore need to begin the Social Security application process are encouraged to attend our July 28th session for New Student Social Security Information. 07/28/17 Room 115 in the PanHellenic Building, 3pm - 4pm.
Although people with other visa categories are always welcome, be aware that the focus for most of these Orientation presentations will be for F-1 visa holders. We will address registration & enrollment, on-campus employment & social security, and federal compliance issues with a particular focus on the needs of international students who either have the F-1 visa or who are holding F-1 status.
Please continue to watch this page for updates, a schedule of speakers, and other International Orientation news as we gain more details.
