International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS), located on the 3rd floor of Oregon Hall, supports over 2,500 international students and approximately 275 visiting scholars and faculty each year.

These international community members come from over 80 countries and contribute greatly to the UO's academics and research while providing a rich diversity that helps to bring an international perspective to the UO's campus life, studies and research.

ISSS offers support on many matters to the international community. As a home away from home, students and scholars can come to us for help with any of their questions or just to sit and chat. As part of our support we offer students and scholars:

  • immigration advising
  • advise and understanding on adjusting to the U.S. culture
  • tax support
  • work authorization support
  • advising on academic English requirements
  • orientation programs
  • scholarships and financial aid
  • short term homestay programs

Above all, ISSS serves international students, scholars, and faculty at UO by supporting them to obtain their highest academic and professional goals.

The staff of International Student and Scholar Services welcomes the opportunity to assist you. We work as a team to provide services and programs that meet the needs of the UO international community. Please contact us today if you believe we can be of help to you.
