The Summer/Fall Enrollment Process Registration for summer and fall classes is approaching for currently enrolled SMC students (non-Intensive English students). Below you’ll find the necessary steps to enroll for summer and/or fall 2011 classes at SMC.. 1. Visit the Enrollment Guide at http://www.smc.edu/enrollinfo/ for more information on Enrollment 2. On Monday, April 25, find out when your enrollment date/time is by logging into Corsair Connect with your student ID and password. Because classes are limited, we encourage you to enroll in your classes on your enrollment appointment day and time. Also visit Corsair Connect to clear any holds before your enrollment appointment. If you are not enrolled in 12 units for the spring semester or owe a balance on your student account, a hold will be put on your record and you will not be able to enroll in classes. 3. Plan ahead and meet with the counselors in International Counseling located on Pearl Street before the rush for enrollment begins. They are available to help you plan your course schedule as well as guide you through the process of earning degrees, certificates and/or transferring to universities. The best time to meet with a counselor is now until just after spring break. The counselors will not be available during spring break. Walk-in appointments are available Monday-Thursday from 8:00 a.m.—3:30 p.m. and Friday from 8:00 a.m.—12:30 p.m. During this time, counseling appointments and walk-in counseling are available. Students will need an appointment for the following: Transcript evaluations for coursework from other schools Long-term educational planning (more than one semester) Reviewing course requirements for private and out-of-state schools Advising students on academic or lack-of-progress probation In addition, beginning May 16, the counselors will be assisting students with transfer applications and any new summer/fall 2011 students; therefore, advising for continuing students will be limited to 15 minute walk-in counseling, mainly for quick questions only. 3. Enroll in your summer and/or fall classes. Currently enrolled F-1 students must enroll in and complete a minimum of 12 units for the fall semester. Summer session is optional. There is a 5 unit enrollment restriction for summer. This will be increased to 8 units the first day of the summer session for students who are able to secure an add code. 4. Print your receipt and class schedule before logging out of Corsair Connect. Please make sure to confirm your enrollment by clicking on ―Transaction Receipt.‖ 5. Pay for your classes. Inside IEC/Counseling >>> Avoid or Clear Commonly Placed Student Account Holds! An international student on an F-1 visa may encounter a ―hold‖ on their student account for a variety of reasons. Having a hold can prevent a student from obtaining services from SMC such as ordering an official transcript, requesting a letter of verification of enrollment, and enrolling in classes for a future session or semester. Because some holds require more time to be cleared, International Education recommends that students remove all holds as soon as possible. The following are just some of the types of holds placed on a student account: ► IEC Hold — The IEC will place a hold on a student’s account when a student needs to sign or submit documents to the IEC, pick up a new/transfer I-20, extend an I-20, etc. To clear this hold, the student with the hold will need to visit the IEC and request information. Be sure to bring a valid photo ID. Depending on the reason for the hold, removing it may require several days. ► IEC Address — The IEC will place a hold on a student’s account when the student needs to notify us of a changed address. To remove the hold, the student with the hold will need to bring his/her valid photo ID to the IEC and complete an address change card. The hold will be removed upon clearance by the IEC. ► IEC Immigration — The IEC will place a hold on an F-1 international student account when a student has not received approval from the immigration specialist at IEC for falling below 12 units during any semester. To remove the hold, the student with the hold will need to meet with an International Counselor and request a recommendation for below units. After receiving a recommendation from an International Counselor, the student with the hold will need to request approval from the immigration specialist in the IEC. Receiving approval from the immigration specialist can be a lengthy process and students who are not enrolled in at least 12 units by the 8 week of the semester should speak to an International Counselor to begin this process. ► IEC Counseling — International Counseling will place this type of hold when a student has been disqualified due to a poor academic record or lack-of-progress, probation, and/or failing to fulfill Back-to-Success requirements. To remove this hold, the student will need to meet with an International Counselor. ► Bad Check — This hold will be placed when a student has written a check to SMC and the check was returned due to insufficient funds. To clear this hold, the student will need to visit Auxiliary Services. ► IEC Non Pay — A student may encounter this hold if he/she has an outstanding balance due for tuition and/or fees. The Deans at International Education do not have authority to postpone and/or remove an outstanding balance non pay hold. Students need to pay their complete balance in order to receive official services from the college such as enrolling in classes or ordering a transcript and removing this hold. ► Assessment — A student may encounter this hold if they have only taken one of the two assessment tests or did not follow directions while previously taking one or both of the assessment tests. To clear this hold, visit the Assessment Office. Bring a valid photo ID. ► Other Holds — Other departments on campus can place holds on as student’s account. These holds must be cleared at the appropriate office, which has placed the hold on the account. International Education does not have authority to clear holds issued by other departments.

Many of you will be traveling within the United States, others may have the opportunity to travel abroad during spring break. Wherever you decide to go, the following information may be helpful. If you plan to take a trip outside of the U.S., you will need to have your valid passport, F-1 visa stamp in your passport (except for Canadian citizens) and your I-20 with a recent travel signature in order to re-enter the U.S. Therefore, don’t forget to request a travel signature from the IEC. We recommend that you request a new travel signature every time you travel. Please allow 10 business days during peak times to receive your signed I-20. In order to receive a signature, you must not have any holds and must be in good F1 standing. For additional information on traveling outside of the U.S., visit http://www.ice.gov/sevis/travel/faq_f2.htm. If your F-1 visa stamp will expire before your re-entry to the U.S., you will need to renew your F-1 visa stamp at the American Embassy or Consulate. Please visit www.state.gov for detailed information about the visa application process and required documents. If you plan to travel within the U.S. by car, bus, plane, or train due to heightened security measures, IEC recommends that you carry your SMC student ID, current passport and visa, I-94, and I-20 with a recent travel signature on you. Summer Internships What are your plans for the summer 2011 session? Are you interested in gaining some work experience in your major field of study and earning class credit? Did you know as an F-1 student you may be eligible to intern? SMC F-1 international students interested in participating in an internship this summer, should schedule an appointment with immigration specialist Melissa Lyon at the IEC to learn more information. In order to be eligible for an internship, you must have completed at least two full-time academic semesters with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. Students will also need to enroll in an internship class this summer, which would allow them to work at a company for the 8 week summer session as a part-time worker up to 20 hours per week. The internship could be paid or unpaid depending upon the employer. The student would earn class credit upon completion of the internship. Again, students must first see Melissa Lyon to obtain a letter of eligibility. Something to look forward to that is an incredible internship only open to SMC students is the SMC Foundation Dale Ride Internship Program. Selected participants have the opportunity to gain experience in the legislative, political and administrative processes in governmental or public service agencies. The Dale Ride Internships provides practical experience while broadening the awareness of public service careers and complimenting the curriculum for both political science majors and those in other disciplines that have significant public service/public policy components. The Dale Ride Internship Program is a great opportunity and applications are due in November for summer 2012 participants. Campus Events Corner >>> International Student Forum (ISF) A long time ago, a group of ambitious SMC students met and discussed the idea of bringing together other SMC students who also were interested in learning about different cultures. As a result of that meeting and other meetings to follow, the student club International Student Forum was created in the Fall of 1991. Although, it did take some time for these students to gather club members and for the remaining campus to be aware of their presence, 15 years later this club has grown from ten to over a hundred members from various parts of the world, both domestic and international students alike. All SMC students are welcome to join. The purpose of the ISF is to provide opportunities for students to develop new friendships, build leadership skills, participate in various activities, and to network with other student groups, programs, and the entire SMC community. All spring 2011 semester club meetings are held on Thursdays from 11:15 a.m.—12:35 p.m. in HSS 151. If you have any questions, please attend one of their club meetings or contact International Student Forum on the ISF Facebook page. International Student Forum Earthquakes: Be Ready and Prepared Earthquakes can occur at any time and without any warning. Here are some quick things you can do to prepare: ► Be aware of any fire and/or earthquake evacuation plans in your home, school, work, or other areas you frequent. ► Store a couple of flashlights and extra batteries in different areas of your home, work, as well as in your vehicle. ► Secure any heavy furniture and large items.

How many times in your life have you looked back on an act of kindness an SMC administrator did for you that helped you through a rough time in your life? Was it Deyna Hearn stopping all of her Student Affairs meetings to speak with you? Was it Teresa Morris welcoming you from your home country and helping you to find a place to live? Or, was it Lydia Casillas helping the International Student Forum set up for Club Row or taking you to San Diego State University and UC Berkeley? How many times in your life has someone asked you about the most inspiring professor you had and the first person who pops into your mind is an SMC professor? Was it Harvey Stromberg who lectured on the different ethnic enclaves in the Boyle Heights area? Could it have been Bill Selby and Nancy Grass Hemmert leading the amazing 7-hour bus tour through the heart of Los Angele’s Korea Town, Watts Towers, and eating Mama’s delicious tamales? Or was it Ed Tarvyd showing you the tide pools in the Malibu Lagoon and telling you about the historic fight to save the La Ballona Wetlands?
