International Student and Scholar Services

Its a llama

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) advises and supports the university’s international community with their visas, social and cultural adjustment to the United States as well as acts as a liaison with relevant government agencies. We collaborate with campus partners and advocate on behalf of our populations to promote global educational exchange and diversity in support of the university’s mission.

Travel Advisory

The Supreme Court has stayed preliminary injunctions that were issued by district courts and have allowed the government to fully enforce Proclamation 9645, restricting entry to the United States for the nationals of eight countries: Chad (removed effective April 13, 2018), Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Venezuela, Yemen and Somalia. Follow updates about litigation surrounding the executive order.
