February 19: Chinese New Year, Year of the Sheep

Chinese New Year is the most widely celebrated holiday in China.  Also known as the Spring Festival, it represents the beginning of spring in the Chinese lunar calendar and is an important time for families to gather together.


Tax Information

All students with F-1 and J-1 visas are expected to submit federal and state tax information for themselves and their dependents for each year that you live in the U.S.

Each year the Center for Global Education (CGE) provides a comprehensive tax guide for international students (link below). This guide is the only tax information that CGE provides for students. If you have specific questions or need individual assistance, please contact the resources listed on pages 3 & 4 of the guide.
