International Students


In the International Programs Office in the Alumni Building, we understand what it’s like to live far away from home. We know how difficult it can be to make friends in a new place, to figure out how to find the resources you need and how to use them, and what it’s like to miss things, people and food from home. We are thrilled to be in a position to serve you in the same way others assisted us abroad.

What can our office do to help you? We specialize in the services you need such as:
  • International Student Orientation
  • Explaining F-1 visa benefits and regulations
  • Advising on how to maintain your F1 visa status
  • Assist with processing official documents and requests
  • How to work off-campus with authorization
  • Information on your health insurance
  • Transferring in or out of Wingate University
  • Cultural adjustment concerns
  • How to obtain a Social Security number and NC Driver’s License
  • Signing your I-20 to travel outside the United States
  • Advising on any other matters that you need help with
  • Providing you with software access to file your taxes by April 15 each year
