International Students and Scholars staff members are available to answer questions regarding immigration regulations from processing paperwork necessary for travel to employment authorizations. We are here to support you during your stay in the U.S. Advisors are available for virtual walk-ins during the times listed below.

In our efforts to assist you in easily navigating useful information across different Pace departments, we have created a one-stop shop navigator for you. Explore the International Student Navigator website in the event you have questions about non-visa related matters, such as academics, housing, health services, tuition and billing, and the like.
