Be an International Friendship Partner next semester!

Do you want to be part of the UAlbany multicultural community? Do you want to earn credits while having fun?

The International Friendship Partners is a series of programs designed to help both American and international students make friends with each other. Participants will also learn different cultures and languages through cultural activities. You can choose to participate in one or more programs listed below:

Part I

International Buddies Program: You will be helping new international students adjust to academic and community life at UAlbany.

Part II

Language & Cultural Exchange Program: The International Friendship Partners Program is designed to provide an opportunity for U.S. and international students to interact regularly on a small group basis outside of the classroom setting.

Part III

Community & Public Service Program: You can take RSSW 291 (2 credits) for meeting friends and doing cultural activities! Please find program syllabus in application.

U.S. CBP Automated I-94 System

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has begun its automated I-94 arrival/departure record system. As international students, you will still receive an I-94. However, it will not be in the form of a small, white card stapled into your passport at the time of entry that many of you are used to. Instead, you will have an electronic I-94, which you will have to download and print from the CBP web site.

Please remember that ISSS needs a copy of any new documents you have been issued, including the I-94. Once you print out the new record, please provide a copy to ISSS.
