Summary

While international students contribute to the diversity and add to the cultural and intellectual aspects of the university's environment, they also provide challenges for administrators, faculty, and students. This booklet provides guidance to graduate deans, faculty, and administrators who work with international graduate students. Academic, administrative, educational, technical, and socio-political issues that are unique to international students are reviewed and discussed. Topics covered include: the relevance of American graduate curricula; admission of international graduate students; the purpose of standardized tests; English language competence and the international teaching assistant; financial support; immigration requirements in both the United States and Canada; academic standards and advising; international student counseling services; international students as postdoctoral/visiting scholars; and responsibilities of the scholar, the sponsoring faculty member, and the institution. Appendices include sample university admission documents for foreign graduate students, addresses of 11 organizations referenced in the guide and a bibliography of recommended sources. (LPT)
