Dear International Students and Visitors, 

Welcome to the International Student Services (ISS) of SUNY Polytechnic Institute. ISS provides specialized services and assistance to the international students in reaching their educational goals by, informing them about their rights and responsibilities relative to their immigration status in the United States, creating a supportive environment and ensuring legal compliance in response to the Department of Homeland Security, the State Department and the Students and Exchange Visitors Program (SEVP) and making the most of the academic experience here at SUNY Poly.

SUNY Poly international students come from many countries including: Canada, People's Republic of China, Columbia, Cyprus, Egypt, Ethiopia, Greece, India, Indonesia, Jordan, South Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Nigeria, Northern Ireland, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Venezuela and the former Yugoslavia.

International students may also become involved in campus life through a variety of student organizations and university programs that include cultural activities, sports, the arts and social events. Regardless of where you come from, or how familiar you are with the United States, you are likely to come across new and exciting experiences that will help you learn and grow.  Our staff is especially qualified to meet the varied needs of all international students at the undergraduate and graduate level.

We hope that you will make our website and offices your very first stop whenever you have questions relating to your immigration status, but also when you are looking for fun activities, for a quiet place to study or if you just need someone to talk to. Our doors are always open and we welcome you to SUNY Poly.
