Grand Valley State University is home to 428 F-1 and J-1 international students. Our office advocates for international students on campus and serves as a primary resource for legal, cultural, and social matters for international students. We work closely with many offices across campus, as well as organizations in our community to help international students feel at home and connected with community.
For any students graduating in December 2018: if you would like to take advantage of your F-1 visa's benefit of one year of work authorization post-graduation, please plan to attend the OPT Processing session.
