Current Students

The Center for Global Services at the GAIA Centers offers international students advising on immigration and visa processing, but we provide you with much more than that. Our dedicated student advisers serve over 8,000 international students from 115 countries enrolled in Rutgers–New Brunswick and RBHS. Whether you are looking to take a reduced credit load, apply for curricular practical training (CPT), or find out about health insurance options--and much more--we can advise you.

Students can check in (mandatory upon arrival to Rutgers) and keep track of your visa status documents by logging into the RGLOBAL online portal. International students enrolled at Rutgers in F-1 or J-1 status can find information on topics such as employment, academic status and changes, travel and visa considerations, and more. Visit our archived website to find general information on how to maintain your F-1 or J-1 status.
