Immigrant Services


There has been a good deal of confusion and anxiety in light of recent federal government actions concerning the status of immigrants in our nation. Queens College stands firmly behind our students, faculty, and staff, and recommends a number of resources for information and assistance:
  • Students and visiting scholars from overseas should direct their questions to our International Students and Scholars Office (King Hall 207; 718-997-4440; iss@qc.cuny.edu). This office helps students and faculty obtain and maintain the F-1 International Student and J-1 Exchange Visitor, U.S. Visa-Immigration Status.

  • Faculty and staff with questions about their legal status may also contact the QC Office of the General Counsel (718-997-5725; email glenda.grace@qc.cuny.edu and copy judith.massis-sanchez@qc.cuny.edu).

  • If you have been detained while trying to enter the United States, or are abroad and need guidance on how to return, contact Citizenship Now! attorney Isabel Bucaram (text, phone, or WhatsApp at 646-860-5678).

  • If you are concerned about someone who was due to arrive in the country but has not yet done so, call 1-888-769-7243, the New York State Emergency Immigration Resource Hotline, which may be able to help you.

  • If you would like to talk to someone during this uncertain time, our Counseling Services (718-997-5420) and Peer Support Services (718-997-5419) are ready to help you.

 Our Mission

Since first opening its gates in 1937 in the middle of the Great Depression, Queens College has been dedicated to offering a first-class education to women and men from all economic and ethnic backgrounds. Today, our students come from over 150 countries and speak over 110 different languages.

In keeping with our original mission, Queens College supports CUNY’s efforts to help DREAMers and undocumented students pursue U.S. citizenship, in addition to higher education.

 

Want to clarify your status? Apply for citizenship? CUNY’s Citizenship Now program offers free personal consultations with paralegals or lawyers to all New Yorkers. Over the past ten years, this program has helped more than 100,000 New Yorkers get on the path to US citizenship and have provided legal information and referrals to another 120,000.

Services are provided at more than 40 locations throughout the five boroughs and serve the community in many languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Polish, French, Haitian, Creole and Italian.
