We know transitioning to life in the United States can be a challenge. In the International Student and Scholar Services office we are ready to provide you with immigration advising, workshops, orientation, and academic and non-academic advising, as well as social and extracurricular activities, that will help your adjustment to the U.S. be a positive one.
