International Education News

As we roll into tax season, international students all over the country will be looking for guidance on whether they need to file anything, what and when they need to file and whether they will get any money back. The tax center on InternationalStudent.com is designed to answer as many tax questions as possible, see more below.

We have also had a great reception and response to our new featured school packages, now starting at $1,995 for a full year’s exposure, unlimited content and unlimited student leads on InternationalStudent.com. This month we are offering a free webinar to help you choose the right package and maximize the return you will get from it.

Hard to believe that registration for the NAFSA Annual Conference in San Diego has opened up, it sneaks up on us every year. We’ll share more about our NAFSA plans next month!

Loans / Financial Aid

Most international students, scholars and dependents are treated as non-resident aliens for tax purposes, which means they need to submit Form 8843 to the IRS. And if they have received any income, they will also need to file a tax return with the IRS - typically the simplest form, Form 1040NR-EZ, will work, but more complex situations require other forms and additional analysis. The best news is that if they have paid any federal income tax, they will likely get it back.

If you are helping international students and scholars complete their taxes this year, get a comprehensive overview at InternationalStudent.com’s Student Tax Return section.

Insurance

Understanding insurance plans and terminology can be quite complex, especially for international students. Most international students come from countries with nationalized healthcare. However, in the US things are not so simple and healthcare costs can be very expensive. Knowledge of the US healthcare system can help prevent students from incurring large medical expenses.

We’ve created an Insurance Explained section of our website where we breakdown the US healthcare system, specifically for international students. Topics include: Insurance Terminology, Understanding Insurance, Health and Safety Abroad, and Comparing Different Types of Insurance Coverage

Please feel free to share this resource with your international students.

Technical Talk

Since 2011, Twitter Bootstrap has been one of the most popular front-end frameworks on the web. With the release of version 3, Bootstrap has given developers and designers even more powerful tools for developing great looking sites on mobile.

One of the most impactful new features of Bootstrap 3 is a more powerful, four-tier grid system. Check out the latest Tech blog post to see how we are using the grid system and other new features to transform our sites to look great on any device, from smartphones to desktops.
