Office of International Students and Scholars

The Office of International Students and Scholars provides comprehensive immigration advising, programming, and support services to all international students and faculty and their dependents. We work with faculty and administrators to build friendship agreements with foreign universities, and we assist international student organizations in planning activities such as International Night and cultural events.

OISS is open from 8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are assisting students on an appointment basis or by email or telephone.   Please contact us at or at (504) 280-6989 and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
