The Office of International Programs is a resource for immigration, international tax and human resource related issues for the international population at the Health Center which currently has 400 international students and scholars representing more than 60 countries.
Control over the admission and stay of an international in the United States at the UConn Health Center is vested in two government agencies:
- INS (Immigration and Naturalization Services), a division of the Justice Department, administers the laws relating to the admission, exclusion, deportation and naturalization of aliens. The Hartford INS office is located in Room 410, 450 Main Street, Hartford, CT 06103-3060.
- The State Department which issues the visas allowing students, researchers and faculty to enter the U.S. (through U.S. Embassies overseas).
