How to Succeed as an F-1 Student (for Fall 2018 Admitted Students)

Success at GA Tech is more than getting straight As.  In order to succeed while studying in the U.S, F-1 students need to comply with numerous immigration regulations. Violation of these regulations could greatly impact a student’s ability to succeed academically.  All newly admitted F-1 students are required to attend this session.  Students in attendance will learn about enrollment requirements, travel issues, working in the U.S (on and off-campus) and other relevant F-1 topics.  For attendance purposes, students will be asked to present their GT identification card (Buzzcard) at the session.
