Dear International Students,

After a research, I created a new folder with very useful links picked especially for you. You will find it on the right-hand side of the blog and it is named INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS HELP. There is a lot of information regarding the rights and options you have as an international student in USA, your on-campus or off-campus employment, Optional Practical Training, tax issues, etc.

I will be more than happy to assist you if you have any additional questions, just leave a comment and I will get back to you!
