Following are resources that students and scholars frequently find useful

Immigration Resources

Whenever encountering any problems or concerns regarding the immigration status or exploring the possibility of changing visa status to the F or J category, please consult one of our international student advisors for guidance. Also consult an ISA whenever there is a change in enrollment status, and whenever there is potential employment offer.  These topics are extremely important for maintaining valid immigration status in the U.S. and we strongly urge the student or scholar to seek advice first to avoid any potential visa status problems. Go to IMMIGRATION RESOURCES.

Financial Resources

Scholarships are forms of aid that help students pay for their education. Unlike loans, scholarships do not have to be repaid. Generally, scholarships are reserved for students with special qualifications, such as academic, athletic or artistic talent. Awards are also available for students who are interested in particular fields of study, who live in certain countries or who demonstrate financial need. Though funding opportunities for international students are scarce, we have compiled a list of some available options. Please review the Financial Resources section for additional detail. Some of these resources are managed by external organizations, thus for questions regarding specific eligibility criteria and the application process, contact the responsible organization or entity offering the scholarship. Go to FINANCIAL RESOURCES.

Campus & Community Resources

In the course of acclimating to life in Gainesville, students and scholars frequently have questions about where to turn for particular needs, such as university based resources, housing, transportation, and community resources. Please review the Campus and Community resources page for additional details. Go to CAMPUS & COMMUNITY RESOURCES.
