WSF1B - F-1 Student Advising for Beginners

Tuesday, October 18
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Room: Ballroom C

Description: This introductory workshop provides participants with hands-on opportunities to learn how to handle the most common requests made of new Designated School Officials (DSO). Participants will develop skills to help them interpret the common requests F-1 students have during the course of their program, research the regulations and other resources that help inform and define the work of the DSO, and determine the best course of action in each case. The workshop will apply these skills to requests such as: issuing I-20s, maintaining status, employment, practical training, travel and reentry, and program extensions. SEVIS is discussed in relation to international student advising practices and procedures.

Audience: F-1 student advisers with less than one year experience; others who are interested in understanding the fundamentals of the DSO role. Visit the NAFSA site for a full workshop description:
