UI Departments

This section of our website is designed to provide information to university offices serving international students and scholars.

Within these pages you will find resources and information regarding international students and academic advising, international student employment rules, and policies for inviting international scholars to campus. If you have questions related to these topics, please contact International Student and Scholar Services.

A comprehensive guide to programs and services offered by ISSS as well as other offices on campus can be found PDF iconhere.

International Programs also provides cultural training resources for domestic students, faculty and staff in UI departments, and for members of the greater community.

ISSS Listserv

Subscribe to the new ISSS listserv for departments at http://list.uiowa.edu/archives/ISSS-INTERNATIONAL-INFO.html .  This listserv is ideal for those who interact with international students and scholars in F-1 or J-1 status at the University of Iowa.  Reminders of immigration-related regulations and deadlines will be sent throughout the year to enable  academic advisors, faculty, HR staff, and others to help keep track of the legal needs and deadlines of their international students and scholars.

ISSS Advising Walk-In Hours

Students will see the advisor on duty on a first-come, first-served basis.  We ask that faculty and staff do not direct students to come speak to specific ISSS staff members.  The advisors on duty will assess the situation and provide assistance or involve other staff if necessary.
