Rent Furniture from CORT
Traveling to the US to further your education and explore new cultures is exciting, but it can also be stressful. One To World has partnered with CORT to provide international students and interns access to affordable furniture to make their house or apartment a home away from home. Student rental packages start at $99/month, and you can find out more at cort.sjv.io/otw-resources.
Save Thousands with Affordable Health Insurance
With the high cost of living in the US and even higher tuition bills, a great way to save between $2000-$6000 annually is to find alternative insurance plans and waive off university health coverage. One to World has partnered with Kimber Health, a leading agency dedicated to helping students find cheap and competitive health coverage options, allowing students to save thousands.
International students in the U.S. are required to file a tax return each year with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). You must file at least one form with the IRS, even if you do not earn income in the U.S. The good news is that if you overpaid tax, you will get a refund!
Filing Your Tax Return
You can use a U.S. tax preparer for international students such as Sprintax to guide you through the process of preparing and completing your U.S. tax return. We (and all other university staff) are not qualified or allowed to provide individual tax advice.
After you login to Sprintax, it will ask you a series of questions about the time you have spent in the United States and in which immigration status, looking back over a period of years. Sprintax will then determine your tax status. If it determines that you are a “nonresident alien” (NRA) for federal tax purposes, you can continue to use it to respond to a series of guided questions. Sprintax will complete and generate the forms you need to print, sign, and mail to the IRS (Internal Revenue Service). If it determines you are a resident alien for federal tax purposes, you won’t be able to continue using the software.

Global Classroom provides international students an opportunity to lead interactive, curriculum-related presentations in New York City public schools about their countries and cultures as well as their academic disciplines. Global Classroom is a wonderful way to further Senator Fulbright’s message while learning more about the city from the perspective of its young people. We hope you’ll choose to get involved right away and help us in our efforts to bring the world into NYC schools!
