As you get ready to leave campus and the U.S. for the summer, please come to the HIO to get a new travel signature on your Form I-20 or DS-2019. The HIO travel signature must be less than 12 months old at the time of your reentry to the U.S. You may come to the HIO with your I-20 or DS-2019 and your passport during our office hours and get a travel signature. No appointment is needed. For information on required documents for reentry to the U.S. click here.
If you plan to work off-campus in the U.S. this summer, you must apply for U.S. work permission. If you have an F-1 visa click here for instructions to apply for pre-completion or post-completion Optional Practical Training (OPT). If you are a J-1 student click here for instructions to apply for pre-completion or post-completion Academic Training (AT).
I feel like there is a lot to learn and imbibe from people due to the vast diversity in the background, culture and personalities and also because the international folklore is quite large. Hence, every other person I meet on campus has an amazing story to tell and an interesting background to share.
