Announcements

Holy Cross is carefully monitoring the Ukrainian-Russian crisis.  Please meet with Dean Tina if you have specific concerns so that she can assist you.

The College remains up-to-date on the COVID-19 pandemic around the world and in the United States. Please regularly consult the College's COVID-19 site, which includes updates about COVID-19 vaccines in Massachusetts.  

This site is updated as promptly and accurately as possible.  However, the world changes quickly and without warning.  It is each student's responsibility to double check all travel information before departing or entering the U.S.  (See "Important Reminders for some guidelines.")

Did you travel outside the U.S. during Spring Break? 
If so, you must provide OIS with a copy of your I-94 arrival form and save a copy for yourself.  

SAVE THE DATE!  Saturday, May 14, 2022, 6:00 pm/ET

Current international students are invited to our annual end-of-year Celebration Banquet, featuring a globally-themed menu.  At this celebration we will honor the international seniors. Watch your Holy Cross email for more details and your invitation.

All F-1 visa students must register with OIS before February 11, 2022
Every semester F-1 visa student must check in with OIS to:
  • Be officially registered in SEVIS
  • Obtain a new travel signature (so you are ready to international travel over Spring Break or at the end of the year)
  • Submit your I-94 arrival form if you traveled outside the US over the semester break.
  • Contact Ms. Lynn Levesque to set up your appointment.

Reminder for seniors applying for OPT:  Tuesday, February 8 is the first date you can apply.  Be sure to set up an in-person appointment with Dean Tina to discuss your application if you have not already done so.
