Search for Jobs Near You

Many students will want to work while studying to help pay for their needs and build their resume, but how do you find and land the job that works for you? It’s normal to need a little help landing an internship or job that will help you gain experience and earn money as you get through your college career. For tips on searching, resume writing, interview preparation, and a guide on what you need to know about working in the US, visit our Student Job Search center.


New to the USA?

Money. Transportation. Social Life. Culture shock. The things that international students have questions about most when they begin their education in the US are endless, but we’ve gathered up some of the most frequently asked questions and concerns and pieced them all into one place you can go to for answers, tips, and tricks.

Find My Funds

Once the semester has begun and the tuition and housing has been paid by grants and scholarships, students often find themselves still in need of filling a financial gap. Loans are now easier to access for international students, especially for those who do not have a cosigner. Students, like you, can use our unique loan widget to find lenders whose services are tailored to fit your needs.


Consider Studying in Canada

We are thrilled to introduce our Study in Canada school search and information center. In this new school search, students can explore which schools they might find interest in, and get background on what it would be like to live and study in Canada. From school search help to financial aid resources, to what accommodations would be like, we’ve left no stone unturned. Explore our new Study in Canada section and school search to see if it’s a good option for you.


Insurance Plans Starting at $29/Month

Having health insurance as an international student is important- even if your school doesn’t require you to purchase coverage. Medical costs inside the US are expensive and health insurance allows you to seek treatment when an illness or injury strikes, without breaking the bank. If you need health insurance for the new semester International Student Insurance (ISI) has plans designed specifically for those studying outside of their home country. With rates as low as $29/month you can find coverage that’s reliable and affordable.
