As International Student Advisor, my goal is to help you attain the best academic and cultural experience at SUNY Upstate Medical University, through your engagement in diverse educational and social experiences, while complying with US federal immigration regulations. I am here to help you adjust to the academic and cultural environment in the US, the Syracuse community, and to provide you with information to help guide you to maintain legal F-1 status, and educate you about the F-1 student benefits that you are eligible for.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Best Regards,
Jennifer
