International Student and 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: F and J immigration regulations, International Student Orientation, International Student Mentor Program, cultural adjustment and intercultural competence development,  obtaining health insurance, opening a bank account, tax filing, counseling, and acquiring a driver’s license, MN ID card, or social security number.

ISSS is located on the lower level of the Christensen Center across from the Copy Center in Suite CHC2.  Our team looks forward to assisting you!
