The UAFS Office of International Relations can help you get a cell phone set up upon arrival. More information will be given at orientation.

Change of Address, Phone, or Email

International students are required to report any changes to their address, phone, or email to the UAFS Office of International Relations within 10 days. To submit changes, complete this form and email a scanned copy or submit it in person to the Office of International Relations.

Transcript Requests

The UAFS Office of International Relations does not issue transcripts. This request will need to be made with the Registrar’s Office, located on the second floor of the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center.

NOTE: Transcripts will not be released to if there is an outstanding charge on your student account or other holds. Please be sure to check with the Cashier's Office to make sure you do not owe anything to the university before departing the U.S. Also note that miscellaneous fees may be applied to your account a couple of weeks after you depart. Be sure to log in to your My.UAFS account after departure to check for any payment that might need to be made to ensure there are no delays in the release of your official transcript.
