International Students

SEVIS requires that all international students are registered (through SEVIS) for the upcoming term. In order to comply with this, all returning international students must stop in at Academic Services and fill out a short SEVIS registration form. Students who do not complete this process will not be registered and, as a result, will jeopardize their status. If you have any questions, please contact Kate Child in Academic Services.

Computer Anti-Virus Software

Information Technology would like to remind you to update your anti-virus software before reconnecting to the campus network, as you are responsible for keeping your computer virus-free while connected to the network. If you need an Anti-Virus Program and prefer not to purchase one, AVG-Free is one possible solution. Another free solution for Windows users is Microsoft Security Essentials.

Campus Safety and Parking

  • Validation stickers: All students will need to obtain a Spring 2016 validation sticker. The sticker is affixed to the front of the College ID card and validates the use of the CABS/GMX shuttle service. Students will not be permitted access to the shuttle without the sticker. The sticker is free and can be picked up at any time in the Office of Student Life or at the Campus Safety Office.
  • Parking decals: Students who have a vehicle on campus and have not yet registered it with Campus Safety must obtain a parking decal immediately. The cost for a decal is $120 for the year, or $60 for just the Spring 2016 term. To get your decal, you will need to provide a current license, valid registration, and proof of insurance. If you had a vehicle on campus last term but will not this term, you must let the Office of Campus Safety know in writing to Emily McGann, associate director of Campus Safety, so that your student account can be credited $60. Off-campus students are required to register their cars with Campus Safety, but there is no annual fee. Parking is available in all student lots. More information will be provided upon registration.
  • Campus Safety staff: The Office of Campus Safety and the Campus Safety Staff are responsible for the general safety and welfare of all students while on campus.
