Being an international student at CCBC is a great thing. Unlike at other institutions, we are considered and given opportunities to advance our studies.

Visa and Immigration Support

The F-1 visa and immigration process can seem overwhelming, but IISS is here to help you navigate through it! Even if we don't offer a particular service, we will connect you with people who can. We can provide information on:

  • How to inform USCIS of your address and program of study changes.
  • How to apply to USCIS to change your status to F-1.
  • How to obtain a social security number for on-campus, CPT and OPT employment.
