Office of International Student Scholar Services
The Office of International Student and Scholar Services (OISSS) provides services, programs, and resources to assist international students and visitors with their transition to campus and to life in the United States.
Eastern Kentucky University has more than 150 international students studying at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. These students represent approximately 30 nations.
OISSS supports international students and works with campus partners in providing educational, social, and cultural programs which promote cross-cultural understanding and contribute to campus internationalization.
The office also has a dedicated staff who works directly with sponsored students studying at EKU through various governmental programs or scholarships. Finally, the office provides immigration visa advising to our international population and serves to keep the university and students in compliance with federal immigration regulations.
