International Student Services

The International Student Services Office leads Bowling Green State University's efforts in recruiting international students and supporting them throughout their career at BGSU by providing them with immigration advising, advocacy, and programming support.

We invite you to explore our website and find useful information about applying to BGSU, immigration regulations, and services and programs to help you succeed as a student.

We hope you will let International Student Services become "your home away from home!"

Important Information

Top 5 Cell phone companies for international calls:

Immigration law allows international students to work ON CAMPUS for BGSU up to 20 hours (maximum) per week when classes are in session.

Any work or service that graduate students perform as part of their assistantship counts toward the 20 hours per week limit. For example, if the assistantship requires 10 hours of service, you may work an additional 10 hours per week at another job on campus.
