International Student and Faculty Services


Ohio University has instructed employees to reduce workforce density by working from home as much as possible.  

We will only open the office during the following times: 

Tuesdays 9:30 to 12:30 

Fridays 9:30 to 12:30 

We are asking that students and scholars only come to pick up EAD cards and travel signatures for travel that will take place in the following week. 

ISFS will mail all other documents to you via USPS.  Please send all general questions to isfs@ohio.edu.


The Office of International Student and Faculty 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.
