Glacier Tax Prep Password Request Form
The International Student Office provides Foothill College international students free access to Glacier Tax Prep software — an easy, user-friendly way to prepare your federal tax returns (Forms 1040 NR/1040 NR-EZ and 8843). To obtainaccess to this software, international students must:
  • be considered nonresident aliens for tax purposes (see below) and
  • be current Foothill students or students who graduated from Foothill and were engaged in OPT the previous year
NOTE: Only international students who are considered non-resident aliens for tax purposes can use Glacier Tax Prep software. If you spend more than 5 years in the United States in F-1 status, you will be considered a resident alien and cannot use Glacier Tax Prep. For more details about residency status, visit the Tax Edition of the I-NEWS.
