About International Student Services

The International Student Services Office (ISS) at Lehman College assists students and scholars to secure the necessary immigration documents to apply for F or J type visas in their home country.

The ISS office serves both the international population and the Lehman College community. International students seek assistance with questions on a variety of academic, cultural, and social concerns. Faculty and staff desire information on immigration requirements in an effort to help and guide international students.

F-1/student status.The Certificate of Eligibility (I-20) will be provided to international students upon completion of all admission requirements and receipt of the required financial documents. After international students are admitted to a full-time degree program, the Affidavit of Financial Support can be downloaded for completion by the sponsor. The I-20 will be issued only after the student has documented sufficient financial resources to study and live in the U.S. Students needing an F type visa must first submit an application for admission. Contact the Admissions Office through the Lehman College web site

J-1/Exchange status.The DS-2019 will be issued to exchange students or scholars after sufficient financial resources have been documented supporting educational and living costs in the U.S. For additional information on securing a J visa, contact the International Student & Scholar Office directly.
