International Student Services (ISS) welcomes you to our international community.
Please read the following important information. It includes policies that new international students need to know and information about activities during New Student Orientation.
A hold will be placed on the student accounts of any international students who fail to check in or attend the mandatory orientations. To prevent a hold being placed on your account, check in with ISS promptly and follow instructions about mandatory orientations. Also, remember that your completed immunization forms and required documentation must be received for you to register and attend classes.
