International Student and Scholar Services

IMPORTANT! Due to staffing shortages we are closing the ISSS for Monday August 1, 2022. We will re-open on Tuesday August 2, 2022. We appreciate your patience.

 

We are very excited to share that we are changing our office name! International Student and Faculty Services (ISFS) will now be known as International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS). This name reflects the international populations that we support, and we are excited to highlight that in our daily work. 

The Office of International Student and Scholar Services contributes to the global mission of Ohio University by providing services and support for the international community and by furthering their personal and intellectual development. In addition, we collaborate with the greater university community to advance global diversity on campus, to foster transformative intercultural experiences, and to promote the development of global leaders.
