Office of International Services

Arnow Campus Center, x2398

The Office of International Services has a dual focus: It provides comprehensive direct service to the undergraduate and graduate international student populations on campus, as well as to the population of undergraduate students who wish to study abroad for a semester, summer, or academic year.

International Student Advising: Lasell has over 100 international students each year who come from approximately 35 countries. The office of International Services provides immigration support and advising, information on maintaining one's status as an F-1 visa holder, general support and assistance in navigating the Lasell community, and cultural adjustment resources. The office sponsors several programs throughout the school year including: resume and career workshops; presentations by immigration attorneys; and CPT and OPT information sessions. Additionally, students may receive individual assistance with a variety of topics, ranging from how to obtain a social security card, to where the nearest grocery store is located. International students also receive a periodic newsletter from the Office of International Services that outlines important announcements and upcoming events happening in and around campus.

Study Abroad Advising: Lasell currently offers over 80 study abroad programs in more than 30 countries. Students who wish to study abroad during their time at Lasell can visit the office for information and guidance on study abroad opportunities, and the office holds several programs throughout each semester also designed to inform students about study abroad opportunities. These programs include: information sessions for first year students; tables at the annual Activities Fairs; fall and spring study abroad fairs; classroom visits; site-specific information sessions; and pre-departure orientation sessions. There is also a study abroad resource room attached to the office, where students can browse through study abroad catalogues and travel books.

Once a student has made the decision to go abroad, there is a specific application process that must be followed. Students must choose a program from Lasell's list of approved programs and then be approved for study abroad before they can apply directly to the study abroad program of their choice. Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing, and any student who falls out of good academic or disciplinary standing at any point in the application process or prior to going abroad, will no longer be permitted to study abroad. Upon returning from studying abroad, students can choose to apply to be a Global Ambassador and assist the office with study abroad programs and offer peer to peer advice to students who may be considering study abroad.

For more information, students should stop by the Office of International Services on the 2nd floor of the Arnow Campus Center or call (617)-243-2398.
