About International Student & Scholar Services

The key role for International Student & Scholar Services is to ensure compliance with federal regulations and the agencies that govern international education. Our office provides quality advising, education, and services in support of these regulations.

The office is committed to helping university students, scholars, faculty and staff with their immigration questions.  Immigration is complex and ever-changing, so please feel free to consult us.
