International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) 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 ISSS 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.
All international students, professors, and scholars must officially check in with ISSS every time they enter the U.S. and at the beginning of every fall and spring semester. The location of the ISSS check-in station will be announced at a later date. Visit the ISSS website for more information.
Drop-in advising takes place on Monday and Wednesday from 2:00 to 4:45 p.m. at the ISSS office. ISSS advisors are available to see students for quick questions during drop-in advising. For complicated cases, please call the ISSS office to schedule an appointment.
