International Student and Scholar Services
Overview of International Students at CCNYWelcome to the Office of International Student & Scholar Services (OISSS). Our Office assists students and scholars who are not permanent residents of the U.S. with a variety of academic and counseling support services. We assist overseas citizens who are adapting to life in the U.S. while pursuing their education with items such as obtaining Social Security cards, employment permission, driver's licenses, bank accounts, foreign exchange permits, and military service deferrals. Professional counseling assistance is available for students with immigration concerns, or academic and personal difficulties.
F-1 Student's App Takes 3rd Prize
Alex Vlachokostas [left], a PhD student in the Grove School of Engineering, won third prize out of 60 participants for his innovative app "gist.ly" in an entrepreneur competition organized by the NYC Media lab. The app allows online readers to get the gist out of any literature, be it a scientific article or restaurant menu.
An electrical engineering major, Mr. Vlachokostas developed "gist.ly" in collaboration with University of Pennsylvania PhD student Nikos Nikos Vasilakis [right]. They started the project in City College's Zahn Innovation Center and plan on commercializing it.
Currently one of the most talked about topics in the news is the growing epidemic of the disease Ebola. We know that the spread of this disease has raised some concern for our students, faculty, and staff. In an effort to help our students with their questions and concerns in regards to Ebola, CUNY has made information about the disease available. You can access it at the link below.
