International Student and Scholar Services

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) is a university-level office that provides multiple support services to international students, including help with visas and other regulatory documents.

International Student Life

International Student Life facilitates the out-of-class support many students need during their transition to the United States. This support focuses on the areas of building community, promoting intercultural education campus-wide, and addressing individual student concerns.

International Transient Study

International Transient Study allows students on an F-1 or J-1 visa, with less than 64 hour academic credit hours earned, return to their country of origin during the summer and enroll as a guest at another accredited school and earn credit towards their Emory degree.
