The International Students Office (ISO), located in the SSC Building, is where all international students must come to first apply for admission.  The ISO offers information on admission and immigration requirements.

The ISO offers enrolled international students advising in the following areas:

  • I-20 issuance
  • Travel procedures
  • Employment procedures
  • Mandatory health insurance
  • Housing information and assistance

All international students are required by Department of Homeland Security to report to ISO upon arrival, when transferring from other schools in the United States and when leaving the country.
