It assists international students with maintaining status and adhering to U.S. immigration laws by providing advice regarding immigration regulations and various immigration–related topics such as employment and travel. OIE provides all immigration document services including initial I-20's/ DS-2019's, SEVIS transfer I-20's/ DS-2019's, and document updates (e.g., I-20 extensions) for active students. It is the official liaison office with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services for non-immigrants attending ESF in F and J student status.
- OIE is the primary on-campus resource for students interested in studying abroad during their academic program at ESF. OIE provides information regarding study abroad eligibility requirements and study abroad opportunities and assists students with completing the study abroad request approval process.

The Office of International Education is open on a part-time basis. Please schedule an appointment in advance in order to assure that the Coordinator of International Education will be available to meet with you (firstname.lastname@example.org / 315-470-6691).
Role of SU’s Slutzker Center for International Services
The Slutzker Center for International Services (SCIS) provides back-up support for the ESF Office of International Education. It should only be utilized for immigration services when OIE is closed for an extended period of time or there is an immigration emergency during the business day and the ESF Coordinator of International Education is not available.
The SCIS also provides new student check-in and document scanning; a new student arrival seminar; bi-weekly seminars (e.g., travel, practical training); general programming; and CINTAX federal income tax preparation software.
If utilizing the Slutzker Center's back-up advising support, be sure to identify yourself as an ESF student.
