Trinity's International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) Office assists international students with all aspects of life on campus. As a current international student, you will be assisted by our office with immigration matters including your current status, and with practical matters related to employment, taxes, drivers licenses, and health insurance information.
The ISSS Office will have office hours in the Flex Space (CELCS Office) in the Coates University Center on select days during the fall and spring semesters. You can visit the ISSS to: have your I-20 signed, apply for CPT/OPT, obtain a new I-20, ask questions, etc. The schedule of the Flex Space will be sent to you via email.
Optional Practical Training (OPT) is a benefit from United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that allows international students in F-1 status to gain off-campus work experience in their field of study before or after completion of studies.
