International Student Advising

In order to comply with U.S. visa regulations, international students at HSU will need to meet with a Designated School Official (DSO) each semester for international student advising. This advising is conducted after you select classes with your academic advisor, and prior to your registration each semester. As an international student at HSU, registration for classes each semester is not permitted until you complete your  international student advising with a DSO.

During international student advising, a DSO will review your immigration status, immigration documents, anticipated course enrollment, as well as provide advising for any additional immigration or international student specific service needs (IE: OPT, CPT, Travel, Health Insurance, Campus Employment, etc.). Once international student advising has been completed and any required documents are collected and approved,  an international student can register for classes.

Additional international student advising can also be scheduled with a DSO as needed and by appointment only. To request an appointment for international student advising with a DSO, please proceed to the following link:
