International Student and Scholar Services offers Tax and Beyond OPT Workshops for international students

During the latter part of February, International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) offered two different workshops to assist degree-seeking international students. On February 20, 2014, international students, especially those who are graduate assistants, athletes and other scholarship recipients, and students in Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT), were invited to attend a Tax Workshop. The workshop addressed state and federal tax returns, including issues related to non-resident filing and international tax treaties. Andrew Hong, a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) from the Greensboro area, facilitated this session for the second year in a row.

A Beyond OPT: Visas after Graduation Workshop was also held on February 27. This session provided details to degree-seeking international students about eligibility requirements and basic processes for numerous visa/immigration classifications for F-1 students. Students typically consider these options prior to completing their OPT, an employment benefit. Additionally, the workshop included information about career-related topics such as building a resume, searching for jobs, and interviewing. This workshop is offered twice a year and is co-facilitated by Michael Elliott, Director of ISSS, Art Serratelli, Partner and Chair of the Immigration Law Group of Vandeventer Black LLP in Virginia, and Chad Collins, Assistant Director of Career Services.
