The Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) assists Tulane’s international community with immigration, cultural adjustment, academic integration, professional growth, and personal support. OISS oversees orientation and arrival, regulatory compliance, immigration services, sponsor services and programming, and serves as a liaison to the U.S. government. We work closely with departments/offices at Tulane as they admit, hire, or prepare to receive international students and scholars. OISS provides programming opportunities for cross-cultural interactions and engagement to the broader Tulane community such as International Education Week, Global Café, the International Food and Music Festival, and the Experience American Tastes (EAT) Program.
Our strong belief is that a vibrant international community enriches Tulane University and the New Orleans community and is an essential component to understanding our role within the world community.
