Prospective Students

The ISSS staff compiled detailed answers to the questions that the majority of our current students identified as the most important issues they faced before coming to SUNY Geneseo. We address common questions regarding housing, food services, classes and academic life and social and recreational opportunities.


At the ISSS office we know that the parents of international students understandably have great anxiety about sending their children away to school. Therefore, we attempt address the questions that seem to be of greatest concern to a parent of an international student.

Health Insurance Questions

Whether a student is at Geneseo for one year or for four, at some point during their stay it is likely that they will seek some kind of medical attention. Even if this means simply getting medicine for the common cold, it is important to understand the insurance policy that all our international students use while at university, what this service includes as well as its cost.
