International Students

STUDENTS ATTENDING RESIDENTIAL PROGRAMS & NON-CREDIT INSTITUTES

Travel and immigration documentation
International students are responsible for securing all needed travel and US immigration documents in order to enter the country and participate in Summer@Eastman programs. Generally, for short-term learning programs or summer camps, travel as a visitor will be sufficient. In consultation with the University of Rochester’s International Services Office (ISO), we understand that you will likely need to have a B-2 visitor visa for tourism or register for the Visa Waiver Program (if eligible). More information is available through the US Department of State: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/tourism-visit.html.

Health insurance
International and non-US citizens participating in Summer@Eastman programs are required to have health insurance. Short-term health insurance may be available through Seven Corners, Inbound Guest: www.sevencorners.com.
