International Student Assistance

International students are required to meet with the international student advisor upon arrival at Daytona State College for immigration registration in the Student Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requires all students on F-1 visas to be enrolled full-time for the fall and spring semesters or their initial term. Daytona State College defines full-time status as 12 or more credit hours. (International Students may not participate in programs that are fully online. Other restrictions apply regarding online courses. Please speak to the International Student Advisor for more detailed information).

To remain in compliance with their I-20, students must maintain a 2.0 or better grade point average (GPA) each semester they are enrolled. Students are required to comply with all Daytona State College rules and regulations. International students are a vital part of our educational program. International students are required to meet with the International Student Advisor each semester of their enrollment. The college will do everything it can to help students have a successful and enjoyable educational experience at Daytona State.
