F-1 Student News
Don't Forget to Register!
As an F-1 student, you must be enrolled and actively participating in at least 12 credits each fall and spring semester.
The U.S. SEVP has announced that existing COVID-19 Enrollment Accommodations will continue for Spring 2022. This means that if you:
Were studying in the U.S. as of March 9, 2020 and have maintained valid F-1 visa status, you may continue to enroll in all online classes in the upcoming academic year.
Arrived to the U.S. in F-1 visa status after March 9, 2020, then you may not pursue a 100% online course of study, but you may engage in a hybrid course of study that exceeds the standard 3 credit online limit. The New International Student Seminar satisfies this hybrid requirement for your first semester. We recommend students who were new to the F-1 visa status after March 9, 2020 to enroll in at least one hybrid or in-person course for Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 to ensure compliance with the most narrow interpretation of the policy guidance.
BE AWARE OF POSSIBLE SCAMS!
Cultural and language barriers often make it difficult for international students to discern what is a genuine offer of assistance versus a scam, which can make you vulnerable to fraudulent solicitations. Scammers may try to impersonate government officials to intimidate you into giving them personal information or money. Government officials will never ask you to transfer money to an individual or ask you to pay fees via phone or email. Scammers may also contact you to tell you that you have a family member in the hospital in your home country and then ask you to transfer money to help that family member. Always check with family members before transferring money to a family member in need. For more information about possible scams and how to avoid them click here.
If you believe that you are being targeted, or have been the victim of, a scam, contact ISS@madisoncollege.edu for assistance.
There will be bakery treats while we play and prizes at the end!

My name is Dilyn Riesterer and I have joined the Center for International Education (CIE) team as an International Student and Education Abroad Advisor! I am a graduate of the UW Madison Global Higher Education Master’s program and have worked previously as a Study Abroad and International Student Advisor. I am excited to be at Madison College to advocate for and support international students as well as student’s pursuing education abroad. Outside of my profession, I enjoy traveling, drinking tea and coffee, exploring new places through food and interactions and being with my dog, Henry.
Please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself! I am available both virtually and in-person and am eager to get to know you all.
