About the international student community


OISS is still waiting on guidance from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) for the fall semester so we will keep updating this page with new information or guidance when they become available. Our office will be in touch with all international students once we have detailed guidance.
