Designated School Official

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Designated School Official (DSO) is an official U.S. term for anyone who officially represents an American college or university in matters dealing with F-1 (visa category for foreign students to enter the United States) affairs. A school appoints its DSO, but it must also be approved by the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (BCIS), which is a federal government body.

The duties of the DSO include signing immigration documents for foreign students. The DSO also supports and advises foreign students.[1]
