Welcome to the Office of International Students (OIS) at the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis (BGSP). As an international student, you have a unique opportunity to expand and share your cultural, social, and academic experiences. The OIS serves all incoming and currently enrolled international students at BGSP by assisting students in maintaining their legal status and adjusting to life in the United States.
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has launched a website, http://studyinthestates.dhs.gov/, intended to provide guidance and information for international students studying in the United States. This resource is a good supplement to the information found on our website.
Leaving home for university study is an exciting, but sometimes intimidating process. When a student leaves both home and country to study, he or she may find language, social, personal, and cultural adjustment overwhelming at times. We wish to facilitate this adjustment as much as possible.
Please be aware that immigration is a complex area of US law, and that the information presented on our website should be used only as a source of general information. For information related to your specific circumstances, we encourage you to contact the International Students Coordinator:

NOTE: It is important to be aware that only web sites ending with “.gov” are official U.S. government web sites. The web address of the official USCIS (US Citizenship and Immigration Services, formerly BCIS or INS) is www.uscis.gov. Other web sites that may look like US government web sites but are not genuine may give you inaccurate or misleading information about immigration regulations, or may try to charge you for forms that are otherwise free.
