International Student Office

The International Student Office takes care of your visa documents and introduces you to things you need at Montgomery College. The office also hosts events to help you to meet other international students and American students, as well as visit the areas nearby the College. We look forward to welcoming you.

Your International Student Coordinator

International Coordinators are available based on the schedule below. You can e-mail general questions. If you are requested to SCAN a document or send a digital copy via email, please include your Coordinator's name, your M-Number (if possible), and your campus of study. If you are checking for status of application, please include your M-Number, and your campus of study. To speak with an office assistant, make an appointment, or to leave a message for one of the Coordinators, call 240-567-5043.  

International Student Office Hours and Contact Information

MC offices are generally open Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. A walk-in appointment is designed for simple issues and does not require advance notice. An appointment is needed for complex, extended, and private issues, or if a sponsor must accompany the student and a specific time is needed. Make appointments by calling or emailing. An appointment must be confirmed by the office at least one day in advance. Coordinators in the International Office are available to speak with students (or an applicant's designee). Telephone conferences may also be requested. Our office assistants may also be able to help you

The Office of the International Coordinators creates the form I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility) used by US Consulates to issue F-1 and M-1 student visas and by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to award F-1 and M-1 student status.  We also confer with students from outside of the United States or students in statuses other than F-1/M-1 to determine eligibility for F-1 or M-1 status, and we provide information on College services to students in F-1 and M-1 status. In addition, we maintain students' I-20 records for USCIS, and refer students to resources to assist them with studying and living in the US and in the great state of Maryland.
