Office of Int'l Student & Scholar Services

Important News & Updates

Office of International Student & Scholar Services (OISSS) works with the international student population from the moment they are accepted to TAMUK until the time they successfully reach their academic goals and beyond. We also work with scholars and international visitors. Initially, we provide immigration documents for visa applications. Throughout students' and scholars' time on campus, OISSS staff meets with them on a one-on-one basis, or in large groups, such as at New International Student Orientation and a variety of workshops, to provide information about maintaining status, employment possibilities, travel and visas, and culture shock.

Beyond working directly with the TAMUK international community, OISSS also meets, advises, and provides training opportunities to TAMUK administrators to introduce and reaffirm policies, programs, and concepts applicable to our international students and scholars.
