Academic advising with UDayton Global empowers students to gain and expand their knowledge and pursue opportunities to achieve academic, personal, and professional goals. Academic advisors partner with students to promote their holistic development, identify academic and career resources, and encourage meaningful engagement. UDayton Global advisors also work with degree advisors across campus to educate students on degree requirements and to support their persistence and timely graduation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get an SSN (Social Security Number)?
You may apply for a social security number ONLY if you have been offered a job on-campus or if you have been granted practical training (CPT or OPT) employment authorization (keep in mind that practical training options are generally not available to new students). An SSN will be given to you for employment purposes only, NOT for purposes such as applying for credit cards, renting an apartment, etc.

  • After receiving a job offer, submit the ISSS Immigration Process Request form. This form will give ISSS the information we need to create the Social Security letter. We will email you further instructions when the letter is ready to be picked up from our office.
  • Bring the form to your employer to sign. This must be an original (not-electronic) signature.
  • Once the form is complete, you can follow the instructions issued by ISSS to apply at the Social Security Office downtown.
  • You are eligible to begin working after you submit a receipt or letter confirming your social security number application to Student Employment.

On Campus Employment: This is a benefit available to all students maintaining valid F1 status. It is not necessary to obtain special work authorization from USCIS to work on-campus; however, you must obtain an on-campus employment certification signed by an ISSS advisor to submit to Human Resources. Please review the F-1 On-Campus Employment Online Information to make sure you understand all the policies and regulations on this type of employment.
F-1 Campus Employment Information

Curricular Practical Training (CPT): CPT is a practical training that is performed for academic credit (part of the school curriculum and commensurate to degree level) AND that is required as part of the academic plan or program curriculum from ALL students in the program.

Eligible students can apply to receive up to 12 months of OPT employment authorization before completing their academic studies (pre-completion) and/or after completing their academic studies (post-completion).

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get a receipt for fees paid during my UDayton Global program?

Please contact the UDayton Global Managing Director to get a receipt for tution and other fees.

How do I pay my tuition and fees?

Students need to pay all tuition and fees in a timely manner to avoid late fees, potential loss of scholarships, and delays in registering for classes. Click here for instructions: global.udayton.edu/prepare-for-your-program/before-you-arrive/#Payment.

American higher education is quite expensive compared to that of other countries. To offset the cost of tuition, scholarships and grants may be available.

It is more common to be awarded a scholarship and grants to be awarded prior to enrolling in an American university. However, there are some opportunities that you may be able to take advantage of.

Click on the link to learn more. The Free Scholarship Search Services at the bottom of the page may be especially helpful.

When considering American banks during your stay there are a variety of types to choose from.

National Banks
National banks are those such as Chase, Wells Fargo, and Citibank. There are many locations across the country, providing convenience for customers.

Credit Union
Like banks, credit unions accept deposits, make loans and provide other financial services. But as member-owned and cooperative institutions, credit unions provide a safe place to save and borrow at reasonable rates.

Online Banks
Online banking means managing your bank accounts with a computer or mobile device. This includes transferring funds, depositing checks and paying bills electronically. Because there are no physical locations, often times fees are lower and interest rates are higher than at national banks. Standard services with online banking include ATM fee reimbursement, advanced security, and high accessibility.

To open a bank account, you will be asked for a number of supporting documents for your application. These might include:

  • Current Passport
  • Proof of address- a piece of mail will usually suffice
  • A letter of enrollment from your college
  • A personal identification number
  • Social security number (only available if you have a job)
  • Student ID number
  • Passport number
  • An international ID number with photo identification
  • Individual taxpayer identification number

If your visa has been denied, please work with your Enrollment Services Advisor to receive a refund for your deposit.

If you have overpaid for tuition or other expenses, please contact the UDayton Global Managing Director, who will work with you to either return funds to your bank account or to apply funds to the next semester’s tuition. Refunds take approximately 45 business days (6 weeks) to process.

More information about refunds is available in the Enrollment Contract under Tuition and Fees: Refunds

Flexible Student Loan Plans for International Students

Both provide flexible student loan plans for international students pursuing degrees at eligible US colleges and universities, without the usual requirements of a cosigner, collateral, or US credit history.
