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.

Please remember that CGE staff do not offer individual tax advice. 

Summer Travel Plans!

As you prepare for summer break, please review the following information if you plan to travel outside the U.S.  For travel to any country other than your home country, you must check with the Consulate of the country you would like to visit to inquire about specific entry procedures.
Prior to traveling outside of the U.S., Sara must sign your I-20 or DS-2019.
This signature confirms to the inspectors at the border when you re-enter that you have been a student at Edgewood College and are expected to return.
To get Sara’s signature on your I-20:

  • Register for at least 12 undergraduate or 9 graduate credits for the fall semester.
  • Submit to CGE the “International Student Endorsement Request,” your I-20, and either a copy of  your course schedule for the upcoming semester.
  • Pick-up your signed I-20 or DS-2019 in the CGE in 2-3 business days.             

To re-enter the United States, you will need:

  • A valid passport.
  • A valid visa.
  • Your I-20 or DS-2019 from Edgewood College properly endorsed for travel.

Also recommended to travel with:

  • Current financial support documents.
  • Current transcript or Enrollment Verification (evidence of student status)
  • Sara’s contact information
