Remember how welcomed the peer assistants made you feel when you first arrived at the Slutzker Center?
We are once again in need of reliable and welcoming volunteers during the Summer & Fall of 2017 arrival process to greet the new international students.
Peer Assistants are unpaid volunteers who support the Slutzker Center in its mission to support and to serve Syracuse University’s international student population.
The primary roles of a Peer Assistant are:
This is a great opportunity to meet new international students, to form new friendships, build your resume and give back to the University community.
To be considered, candidates must meet the following criteria:
Peer Assistant volunteers will be required to work a minimum of 14 hours per week during the term(s) for which they applied. Based on availability, Peer Assistants will be expected to work from June 12 –August 1 -31, 2017
Application deadline is Friday, March 31, 2017.
If interested please send your completed peer assistant application to Fariba Rahmanzadeh at firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
