Information for International Students

International students have special needs and certain different requirements from students who are U.S. citizens. It is the responsibility of international students to learn about these requirements and insure that they are met. Consequently, it is highly recommended that all international students take advantage of the services offered by the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS).
