Welcome International Students
Dear International Students,
Welcome to Eckerd College! As Coordinator of International Student Affairs, I will be your contact to guide you through the laws and procedures that will regulate your activities as a foreign student.
Once you arrive on campus, I will contact you by email so we can arrange a meeting in my office.
In the meantime, visit the International Student Services page to find information about Visa Regulations, the International Health Insurance Plan, etc. Also, please review the legal requirement guide. It should help you with the legal procedures prior to your arrival such as applying for an F-1 visa, what papers to carry to enter the United States, etc.
Eckerd College has foreign students from many countries and the International Student Association (ISA) organizes events regularly. You might want to join this association during the Club Fair organized in early Fall. They have put together an International Student Welcome Guide. It should provide you with some valuable information before you arrive on campus.
I am looking forward to meeting you. Feel free to contact me at (727) 864-7678 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need additional assistance.
Coordinator of International Student Affairs
