Please check your Pratt email regularly for important and time-sensitive updates. Our emails will come from, to your Pratt email. If you cannot keep control of your inbox, you need to routinely search for messages from OIA as the sender. It is your individual responsibility to maintain your own F-1 status and monitor for important updates or messages from OIA, as immigration procedures can change rapidly.

Watch out for Scams! Scams are all over the place and Pratt international students fall victim regularly. Pratt will never call or email you asking for money transfer. Sudden job/internship offers are also scams. Also, if your home country “police” call your U.S cell phone from a legitimate U.S. or home country number, immediately hang up and block the number immediately. Do not engage with the caller no matter how real they seem, as this is a very known and effective scam that involves spoofing real phone numbers and realistic documentation.


All team members should be contacted via Please do not use our individual email addresses as we do all our work as a team in Salesforce using the common email. We look forward to assisting you, and we welcome your feedback.
