Deadline to Pay for Insurance - June 30th

The deadline to pay for the International Student Health Insurance coverage for summer is June 30th. Health insurance coverage is mandatory and ends when CIE no longer supports your F-1 visa status. This includes summer, even if you are not taking classes or you are traveling abroad. You can easily pay your fees through your student account.

MIP Grocery Card Giveaway

The COVID-19 crisis has created hardships to many, including international students.

Madison International Partners is bringing its modest contribution in the efforts to alleviate the hardship. We are helping international students by giving them grocery store gift cards. Apply for a gift card here (one card per family)

Remember to File your IRS Tax Forms

As a nonresident in the U.S. you have a tax filing obligation with the IRS, even if you did not receive U.S. income.

Failure to file can lead to complications when applying for U.S. visas in the future.

Madison College has arranged free access to Sprintax Tax Preparation for you.

Sprintax will guide you through the tax preparation process, arrange the necessary documents and check if you are due a tax refund.

All you need to do is:

  • Register and follow the simple instructions
  • Complete the online questionnaire
  • Enter your unique code SpTx2019MC51F
  • Sprintax will prepare your tax return

Finally, once you complete the preparation process in the Sprintax software, you must print, sign and mail your documents to the IRS.

If you have any questions, the Sprintax team will be happy to help via their 24/7 live chat facility.
