International Student Services- informational update

It is with great pleasure that I announce that Janet Hoyte has been hired as the International Student Advisor. Janet is coming from the Office of Student Life where she was the Assistant Director. The International Student Advisor ensures our international students who hold an F1 Visa are in compliance with federal regulations and other policies issued by the Department of Home Land Security through the SEVIS system.  This person also coordinates all Occupational Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT) for international students
 
With the hiring of Janet Hoyte, this position will report to Student Affairs, which will help us coordinate this work with our larger student advising functions. Please refer international students seeking these services to Janet in the Office of Student Affairs in the College Building.  Note that after May 17, 2010 the Office of Student Affairs will have a new location and all students seeking our services must report to the new location in Woods Gerry.
 
Janet Hoyte can be reached at jhoyte@risd.edu or by phone at 401-277-4834.  With the start of the new school year this coming fall all the paperwork will be corrected with the new campus location.
 
 
Sincerely
Raj Bellani
