The U.S. government sets a variety of requirements for schools that enroll international students. The International Student fee is necessary for the university to meet those new requirements and continue to provide the services international students need to maintain their lawful immigration status and adjust to life in the U.S. and Las Vegas. The $145 per semester fee is assessed to those students on an F-1 status holding a current I-20 issued by UNLV.
The revenue generated by this fee will be used directly toward the services provided only to international students. As an international student, your fee will:
- Help you understand the many regulations that affect international students. You will get more help from OISS advisors.
- Go toward technical improvements in the OISS office to make it easier for you to request documents, make appointments, and update your information in office database and SEVIS programs.
- Enable the OISS office to offer you more workshops.
- Ensure that the university meets the unique needs of international students.
