The Berkeley City College International Student Office will be hosting a series of three free workshops after Spring Break.

All workshops will be held at BCC Room 053 from 5 to 6 p.m.

Tax Workshop: Monday, March 28, 2016

Did you know that all international students have to file at least one document for taxes (8843)? Come to this workshop to learn more about the forms that may be required for you.

Employment Workshop: Monday, April 4, 2016

Learn about the different options F1 students have to work on and off campus. This workshop goes over volunteering, CPT, Pre-Completion OPT, and Post-Completion OPT.

Transfer Workshop: Monday, April 18, 2016

We will welcome a panel of former Peralta International students who have successfully transfer to a university this past year. They will be on hand to talk to you about the process, adjustment and expectations of entering university life. We will also go over some of the basic processes to make sure you have a smooth transition.

See you there!!!

One of our international students from Thailand, Patsaralak Siripaweennakorn, who was enrolled in COA’s Apparel Design and Merchandising program, will be featured on the cover of the American International Education Foundation (AIEF) UScampus Guide Spring 2016 magazine.

The contest theme was “Favorite Class in Action”, which was voted on through AIEF’s Facebook page. UScampus Guide is a free magazine that features useful articles and information to help students succeed in their journey to study in the United States. Students can read online or download the magazine through AIEF’s website here: Peralta will also have an inside front advertisement to complement our appearance in the upcoming edition.

I would like to thank Jeff Heyman and Faiza Ali from our Department of Public Information, Communications & Media, who provided the photo for the contest. Also, to everyone who voted on Facebook to help our photo win!
