International Student Services
International Student Services (ISS) serves the needs of international students holding either F or J visas. ISS assists international students in maintaining and achieving the benefits of their visa status while in the United States. All new international students are required by the U.S. federal government to check in with the ISS office upon arrival; this occurs by the student's mandatory participation in International SOAR. At orientation, ISS staff provide an overview of the regulations to which student visa holders are subject, including compliance with the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System. Continuing students are encouraged to utilize the services of the ISS office if they have questions regarding their status.
