International Student Services

Dominican University welcomes F-1 and J-1 students and scholars from around the world and helps them with all immigration services.  We provide support and assistance concerning visas, issuing I-20s, facilitating SEVIS transfers, F-1 benefits and all other related immigration issues.

The PDSO (Principal Designated School Official) is Dr. Sue Ponremy.  The office is located in Parmer Hall, Lower Level, in the Academic Enrichment Center.  It is always best to make an appointment with the student worker, by phone at (708) 524-6965 or by email

The other DSOs are Paul Simpson and Andrea Leinweber.

These webpages are specifically intended for information about F-1 students.  If you are a J-1 student or exchange visitor, please contact Sue Ponremy (see above) directly for further information.

We hope that you enjoy your studies at Dominican University and learn a lot both inside and outside of the classroom.
