Who is an International Student?
International Student is a popular term for the more precise, Foreign Student – a student who is in the United States as a “non-immigrant,” for example, with a temporary visa like F-1 Student. The term does not technically include the many students at SUNY Broome who are foreign-born, for example U.S. Permanent Residents, refugees and other Visas (H4, etc.).
