Office of International Services

The Office of International Services provides assistance to international students, faculty, and staff. Over 1,800 international students from more than 100 countries attend the University. The Office of International Services plays host to these students by providing: admissions material and services; social, cultural, and personal advising; information and counsel regarding compliance with U.S. immigration laws and regulations; and international programming with student organizations and academic units.

The Office also serves the cultural and adaptive needs of the approximately 1,200 foreign faculty visiting the University each year. Close ties are maintained with the English Language Institute, the University Center for International Studies, academic departments and schools, embassies and consulates, as well as other services provided under the Dean of Students. Campus presidents, deans, and department chairs are strongly encouraged to consult with the Office of International Services about immigration regulations, visas, work requirements, and evaluation of foreign credentials before inviting foreign faculty and/or researchers to the University.

The Office of International Services is located in 708 William Pitt Union, telephone 412-624-7120.
