International Student Newsletter!

PARTNER Newsletter

Spring has sprung and it is time for the April edition of our International Student Partner Newsletter. Today is the the last day to file a tax return so we’ve included resources that you can pass along to your students. We’ve also rolled out a referral program and started NAFSA planning, including our now famous pre-NAFSA reception. This month’s tip comes from Jackie Li at Green River College so make sure you check it out.

We hope you enjoy our newsletter and as always, Happy Recruiting!

April Edition - Issue #18

Reminder: US Tax Returns are Due Today

Today is the day: the US tax return deadline! Don’t forget to remind your international students that even if they did not earn income in the US last year they must still complete Form 8843. Our tax section is a good place for students to get started and our Form 8843 Online Wizard can help relieve some of the pain during this process.

Tip of the Month: Help New Students Adjust

Our tip of the month comes from Jackie Li at Green River College. Find out how they help their students adjust to college life in the US.

“At Green River College we’ve put a lot of our attention on peer mentors. We’ve notice that first quarter students find it difficult to talk to their teachers and our staff and we wanted to bridge that gap. We require that all first quarter IEP students attend our weekly workshops that include learning modules such as personal safety, study skills and college success. In addition, students are paired with another international student that they meet outside of class once a week. Since we’ve implemented this program our students are not only focused on their school but more comfortable talking to friends and teachers. It’s given all students, mentor and mentee, a lot of self pride to be more connected with the college.”
