International Student & Scholar Services

Welcome International Auggies!

International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) is the home for both admissions and advising services for international degree-seeking (F-1) and exchange students and scholars (J-1).

Our team is highly motivated to support international students and scholars in achieving their academic and professional goals. We seek to do our work in a professional, fun and culturally competent way.

ISSS provides information, referrals and advising in the following areas: admission requirements, F and J immigration regulations, cultural adjustment and intercultural competency development, obtaining health insurance, opening a bank account, tax filing, counseling, and acquiring a driver’s license, Minnesota state identification card, or social security number. ISSS is also responsible for the programming associated with the International Student Orientation, the International Student Mentor Program, and the International Student Organization

ISSS is located in the lower level of the Christensen Center across from the Copy Center in Suite CHC2.

Our team looks forward to assisting you!
