This week, February 20-24, 2017, the Slutzker Center will be signing I-20s (for students in F-1 status) and DS-2019s (for students in J-1 status with DS-2019s issued by Syracuse University) so that students who leave the U.S. can re-enter from travel outside the U.S.
If you plan to travel outside the U.S. and return, you need a travel signature on page 2 of your I-20 or in the Travel Validation box on your DS-2019.
Travel signatures are valid for one year. You do not need another travel signature if you already obtained one since you began this Spring semester.

The Slutzker Center will soon make available a tax preparation software program called Sprintax. This will replace Glacier, the previous program that we used. An international student is required to file a tax return if you worked in the U.S. or received a stipend, grant or allowance over a certain amount of money. Sprintax will assist you to prepare a tax return.
If you didn’t work or receive income in the U.S., you are still legally required to file a Form 8843 with the Internal Revenue Service. You do not need to/should not use Sprintax to file the Form 8843.
Information about accessing Sprintax to use to prepare your 2016 tax return will be available after February 15. Please watch your syr.edu email for information and visit the Slutzker Center tax webpage.
If you would like to file your taxes before Sprintax is available, the Slutzker Center tax webpage has links to Internal Revenue Service and New York State forms and instructions.
The filing fee for an OPT application (Form I-765) increased to $410 effective December 23rd, 2016. All OPT applications submitted after this date must include a check or money order for $410.
We are collecting information about the potential impact of the recent U.S. election results on immigration matters here.
There are some matters about which there is a lot of speculation because no one can know what will happen…what will the new President of the U.S. do with regard to immigration? There are other matters about which there is some certainty…what does the U.S. legislative and regulatory process require for changes in immigration matters to take place?
If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to visit the Slutzker Center to speak to an advisor. We have an Advisor on Call, Monday-Friday, 11 am-3 pm. Please keep in mind that we expect to learn more about the new administration’s immigration-related intentions over the next few months.
We ask you to keep in mind the following from the November 11, 2016 Message from Chancellor Kent Syverud:
Syracuse University is built upon a deep sense of an inclusive community. This is a commitment to open and respectful dialogue, dedication to academic freedom and the search for truth, and a promise to include all voices, to listen to all viewpoints, and to embrace all members irrespective of race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, citizenship, disability, veteran-military status and political views.
