On Tuesday, April 5 from 12:00-1:30 in 68-180, the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education (ODGE) will be offering a workshop on Navigating the U.S. Financial System. This workshop is open to international graduate students only. Some of the topics that will be covered include choosing a bank, types of bank accounts, ATMs and debit cards, credit cards, transferring money, budgeting, apartment hunting, ways to plan financially if they are planning on staying in the US, and more. We will be offering a presentation with plenty of opportunities for discussion. Along with members of the ODGE team, we will also have Dana Reichman, International Student Programing administrator and Advisor from the International Student’s Office on hand as well as representatives from the MIT Federal Credit Union. Free pizza!
For the purpose of ordering enough food, we request that interested students RSVP by 2pm on Monday, April 4th.
