International Student and Scholar Services

We look forward to welcoming you into our community! We are here to help you prepare for your time at BSC and to advise you throughout your college experience. Our staff is knowledgeable and dedicated to supporting you during your program, whether you are a degree-seeking student or a visiting scholar, or participating in an academic exchange.

The Sklenar Center for International Programs serves as the central office on campus for dealing with the specific concerns, questions and needs of those who come to BSC from abroad. The Sklenar Center works closely with faculty, staff, campus organizations and community groups to ensure that international students and scholars have the greatest opportunity to achieve their academic and personal goals. Our office is conveniently located on the second floor of the Norton Campus Center in suite 280.

The center provides:

  • advice to international students and scholars regarding immigration compliance and visa status maintenance;

  • orientation to the BSC community and assistance regarding cultural adjustment to the U.S. through our ISO Seminar and International Peer Advisor programs;

  • advocacy for international students and scholars on BSC’s campus;

  • global engagement initiatives that support each student/scholar’s academic, social and intercultural development, such as Global Gatherings and International Education Week;

  • opportunities for international students and scholars to make connections with faculty, students and community members both on- and off-campus.
